Remarks:

The Wayfarer dinghy was designed by Ian Proctor in 1957 and in the subsequent 60+ years has acquired an unrivalled reputation as a tough and seaworthy cruising dinghy, yet at the same time being responsive and rewarding to race. The UK Wayfarer Association was founded a year later, in 1958.

There is probably no other centreboard boat in the world which combines these qualities as happily; it is this great versatility that makes her so outstanding as a racing and cruising boat.

Since the Wayfarer was originally designed there have been improvements in materials and production techniques which have lead to a variety of different versions all sharing the same hull shape and sail plan. The Wayfarer currently has a Portsmouth Number of 1102 (2020).

– UK Wayfarer Association

This Mk1 Wayfarer, sail number W972 (of some 11,000 to date!), was built by Smallcraft in 1963 and has been owned by the same family since 1998. Understood to be in excellent condition, her cockpit has been treated with epoxy and her hull is painted in deep navy blue. Last raced during the 1990’s, she was re-rigged for cruising in 1998 and cruised regularly until 2009 and has since been stored indoors. A good home is sought for this much loved little craft.

Please note: The photos show the vessel in autumn 2021 and prior to her being relocated to alternative shed storage. Other than for some dust (free of charge!), we understand her condition to be much the same now.
