Broker’s Comments

Fred Shephard 37’ Gaff Cutter BEELEIGH is certainly a special yacht – she presents the opportunity to own a fantastic piece of British boat building history. She has been well cared for and maintained following extensive restoration in the 90s. Now looking for a new owner to love, care, cherish, race and cruise her.

She was built in 1913 and her first owner kept her for some time, she then had a variety of owners before emerging in 80’s or 90’s and not in a good way. She was then extensively restored and refitted in Yorkshire where the coach roof was modified and she was given a Bermudan rig. In 2001 she was then bought by a gentleman from Christchurch and he changed her back to her traditional gaff cutter. She was then bought by her current owners in 2011, who have made various upgrades including a nice new suit of sails.
