Maurice Griffiths – 35 for sale
Eastern, Maldon, Essex, Eastern, United Kingdom.
35ft Classic Maurice Griffiths Bermudan CutterShe is one of just two yachts built to this a typical Maurice Griffiths design; the first one was his own (Wild Lone II, now Wild Goose, launched in 1935) who was so admired by a former High Sheriff of Essex that he bought a set of her plans and commissioned the Leslie Harris yard at Burnham on Crouch to build him a similar yacht. That yacht was Jorrocks II; she was completed in 1936 and was the last to be built at the Harris yard. She is truly a classic.
