    Ivory Gull was purchased on 19th March 2015, with an MCA bill of sale and transferred to the current joint owners. She is a beautiful yacht and is only up for sail due to a house move that means the current joint ownership can no longer work. The transaction was carried out through the then leading junk rig brokers, Sunbird Marine. A full survey was conducted and all points raised were fully rectified before the boat was used for the first summer. In the winter of 2015/16 and 2017 extensive work was carried out on re-fitting the boat, to improve the function of many items and to ensure long term reliability.


    Notable improvements include:



    ·         New DSC GPS radio with mast head antenna

    ·         New instruments – Clipper Wind System, temperature gauge

    ·         All new LED nav lights and LED conversion to interior lights

    ·         Solar panel regulator to charge both batteries

    ·         Rewiring to restore the original very high standard fitment

    ·         New battery charger

    ·         New 110ah domestic battery

    Sails, Covers and Running Rigging

    ·         New sails made by Chris Scanes with cambered panels

    ·         New pultruded fiberglass battens with custom stainless fitting for sheetlets

    ·         All new rigging with Dyneema soft-shackles throughout

    ·         New lazy jacks

    ·         New sail covers fitted to booms so the sails are easy to stow

    ·         New Lewmar rope clutches with acrylic canvas covers

    ·         New cockpit cover with window

    Engine and Gearbox

    ·         Injector pump and injectors serviced

    ·         New glow plugs

    ·         Exhaust manifold replaced

    ·         Cooling pump rebuilt

    ·         Flexible fuel pipes renewed

    ·         New cooling header tank fitted

    ·         Engine bay light



    ·         New curtains and refurbishment of the interior

    ·         New paraffin burners

    ·         New safety equipment – Seago life raft, extinguishers, fire blanket, first aid kit, Windward MOB sling

    ·         Toilet serviced, bilge pumps serviced

    ·         Automatic bilge pump fitted with manual override switch

    Sailing Performance

    With the new camber cut sails, the performance to windward is greatly improved and easy to balance to give a neutral helm. The tacking angle is about 110 degrees and downwind performance is superb with easy jibing and reefing. There is a tiller mounted Autohelm, which works well. The rig has been set up for ease of use and minimum amount of rope, but the fittings are there if the new owner wanted to add more control lines.
