Jollyboat for Sale – J71 Lying Linlithgow – West Lothian

Details from Apollo Duck:


This 18 foot racing dinghy has been in the family since new. Designed by Uffa Fox and built by Fairey Marine. It has been garaged for the last 30 years, except for 2 years use on fresh water. It is ready to sail / race and comes with all necessary equipment, inclubing refurbished road trailer, Dacron sails, spinnaker, sheets, trapeze, fitted PVC cover, lifejackets. It has built in bouyancy to the sides/ rear and bow, Elfstrom self bailers and 2 transom flaps. Alloy Proctor gold mast and boom,on centre horse. Stainless steel rigging and trapeze wires. Timber lifting rudder and timber encased swing centreboard. Woodwork is in excellent condition and sound. Cosmetically could do with decks stripped and revarnished as has been sanded and patched in places. Photo taken in 1966 on loch Lomond, but 20 or more 2010 photos available upon providing me with an e-mail address. Will be moving home shortly and unlikely to be using the boat again, so looking for “a good home”. Rare opportunity for an enthusiast. Available for this years sailing but can store it for a while, if required. Ready to tow away. Viewings welcomed.

Price:  £13,999.00

Is this boat still around? It sounds like one I was interested in a year ago but had a hip done so dropped out. Fine now but is this price right?

Afraid that I don’t have any idea at all….

I just heard about it and put the post up linking to the ad.

On the other hand if you want a ‘shell’ to re-build, I am sure I could help you.

You don’t happen to have kept an e-mail or other address?

Never had one.

Just saw the advert in Apollo Duck……saw the price….fell off chair I was giggling so much and thought I would share my amusement with other Jollyboat owners!

Afraid I never made any contact with owners at all.

I suspect there may well of been a thread about in on the CVRDA forum at the time. Maybe someone else contacted them? You could ask there, or have a good search.

Best wishes
