Talk to: Andy Bullock


Free: British Moth (700 series)

Older wooden boat appears generally sound and complete including spars, running & standing rigging, foils and trolley, apart from a matching sail.


Definitely a ‘project’ - known issues are that the mast step needs remounting and cockpit floor could do with strengthening (glue in some extra ply). MSC has some unmatched sails, so one could be loaned.


An introduction to Moth sailing, just don’t plan to take it to the Nationals.

SOLD: British Moth 839 'Just Panic' - £800 ono

Almost watertight, with new aluminium mast support (so not in danger of rotting again).

And video in a pursuit race here: Heron vs British Moth Pursuit - YouTube (note that the kicker has been upgraded since then!)
