WB98 For Sale by Private Auction
« on: January 18, 2019, 02:00:07 PM »
I received the following from the Administrator of the Hove Hospice - the current owner of WB98 is a resident, and is wanting to sell with the money from the sale going to the Hospice.

For photos - see the mainsite Gallery for WB98.


20 Foot Winkle Brig Camper Sailor.   Collection from Hove BN3 area
This boat has been out of water for over 2 years with the plan for it to be renovated.
The owner has now decided to sell as is and donate 100% of the sale to the Martlets Hospice.
Please see photos for current condition and feel free to contact us via email –  if you need any more information.

Built approx.. 1993 by Eric Berguist in Cheshire, England.
Hull Fiberglass – no damage
Tabernacle fine but some damage/rotting to bottom few inches of mast - please see photo.
Comes with:
Sails – Deep Red/Burgundy
2 Ring Gas Hob
Camping Style Toilet
4 Life Jackets and 1 Dog jacket
Bag of mixed ropes
Custom made vinyl cushions
Auxiliary Outboard - Mariner 4
CQR Anchor
Chain Cable

Also includes trailer as pictured, this was in good working order when it was last used with cosmetic damage, however it has not been used in several years so we cannot guarantee all is as it should be.
We would advise this is either checked thoroughly before attempting to move or collected on a recovery truck.
