PEGGY 36ft: Morecambe Bay Prawner For Sale / Lancashire Nobby For Sale
Peggy is an ex-working prawning boat, believed built about 1910 by Crossfields at Arnside, and worked out of Maryport (registration number MT13). We have owned her for sixteen years and Peggy has shown herself to be a fast and capable cruiser/racer; she achieves good passage times as well as being stable and comfortable in a seaway. Winner Liverpool Nobby race in ’93 '97 and ’95, and Bateman Cup in East Coast OG race 2002. In 2013 we were lucky enough to be able to be part of the OGA circumnavigation of the UK and came to realise how very manageable and enjoyable she is to sail with just two crew. At 36ft on deck, 11ft beam and about 5ft max drought, she is one of the larger prawners. Her cabin is spacious; she can sleep 5 in two cabins plus W.C./wash room.
We have maintained her fit for extended cruising. All her sails, standing rigging, and running rigging have been renewed by us. The picture of her sailing (taken a few years ago) shows her cruising rig; other sails include lightweight racing jib and staysail, topsail and various reaching foresails. All the sails and rigging are in good or excellent condition. Her spars and hull are in very good condition - her bowsprit was replaced with one in laminated spruce about ten years ago. Her engine is really excellent- powerful and reliable: a Nanni 4-43HD; 4 cylinders 2.2-litre engine with water-cooled gearbox; this drives a Brunton 18inch self-adjusting three-bladed propeller, that automatically feathers when sailing; this was all new and installed in winter 2013/14, and has had little use. 120 litres capacity of diesel. 60litres of fresh water. Jabsco toilet is about 5 years old. Nelson cooker – gimbled with two burners plus grill and oven, VHF radio and Garmin plotter was all new for the 2013 trip. She has a Reflexes diesel cabin heater. Recent photos show the cockpit cuddy and stern railing that we fitted for 2013, but this is easily removed if so desired.
Asking price £19000 all offers would be considered.
