Maurice Griffiths Lone Gull II Project, for sale lying Salcombe. This Maurice Griffiths Lone Gull II Project has been in the same family since new. It was owned by the farther who unfortunately never managed to finish the boat, the son has now taken over the project with the boat moving from Chichester to Salcombe, where she goes afloat every summer. With so many other commitments its with great sadness that he brings the boat to market so hopefully she can be finished off to the high standard that the various elements already completed have been done to. She has the original engine in her since new but has only been run under the supervision of a marine engineer so has done very very few hours. She will make a lovely boat for someone who has the time skills and imagination to finish her in a way that suits them.
The Traditional layout of this boat would be 6 berths in two cabins, with two settee berths in the saloon with 2 pipecot berths above each, A galley to port, a chart table to starboard, a head forward to starboard, and v berth forward. However this could be fitted differently by the new owner to fit their needs.

Owners Comments
My Father purchased the bare hull of the first GRP Lone Gull to come from the mould which was taken from an original wooden vessel. Moulded in two parts, the deck mould with the dog house included. My Father had planned to fit her out from scratch, but unfortunately ran out of time. Whilst many components are constructed and finished, they have been removed to allow more space to work. The davits are made from solid English Oak and have been epoxy coated to preserve them. The bowsprit has been formed and is ready for fitting; however, any new owner has the choice as to which rig they prefer, with or without a bowsprit. The oak crooks were fitted in the late seventies and epoxied with a balsa padding layer between the hull and the crooks to take the strain of the rigging. All the windows have been cast in Admiralty Bronze and most have been fettled and polished by hand ready for drilling and fitting. The oval glass has been cut and ready for fitting. I would be very happy to discuss all the plans that I know about, there as a set of MG’s working drawings as well to go with the boat. This Maurice Griffiths Lone Gull II Project will make an excellent project which, depending upon the time available, would take 1 or two winters to complete ready to take the rig.
