Hello Sam and Welcome on the forum. Congratulations for the acquisition of a  Winkle Brig. It's a wonderful boat!

I would love to help you, but as I Iive in Germany, I am too far away.

Maybe you have not noticed some illustrations, that could help you. You can find them here in the forum:

Hello Thea,

WB is really a beautiful and very robust boat. Some of them have some difficulties with the bilge plates. Sometimes they do not lift up and down easily. You should have a look. I do not know any other typical WB problems.

The price seems to me a bit high. Naturally, it depends on the care status. If there is a lot of work to do I would not spend more than 5500 Euro. If the status is really fine (e.g. ready for sailing), I would not pay more than 6500.

If I remember correctly, Mathilda was offered already last year, firstly for almost 9000 Euro, later for about 8000. I was looking for a boat for myself at that time, but Mathilda was too expensive for me. I hope this Information is a bit helpful. Good luck for your negotiation.

this thread seems to become a meeting point for new Wiklebriggers. I bought mine in October from the most friendly and kind Kate and Paul Clarkson. This is my first post.

My Winkle Brig 69 is technically in a good shape, so my winter work is mostly of a cosmetic kind. Nevertheless my wish list for Christmas is full of stuff for the WB.

I towed her to the continent. because I live in Germany. I am sure, the side marker lights are most useful for increasing safety, but as far as I know, they are not required by authorities on the continent.

All the best for Christmas and the New Year for all of you. Safe sailing and fair winds!
