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 448 (of some 11,000 to date!), was built by Moores in 1961 and has been owned by the same family since 1990. Understood to be in excellent condition having been completely renovated and only sailed twice since her works were completed in 2022. A good home is now sought for this much loved little craft owing to her owner’s advancing years and the purchase of a larger sailing boat.
