    ‘Morvarch’ is a Golant Gaffer; 5.7m on deck, nearly 8m over spars. Built to very high standards and much admired -- "prettiest boat on the river" (the Weiti), "xxxing beautiful" from Ray Beale.

    Strip-plank (bead and cove) clear air-dried Macrocarpa hull, glassed and very fair. Ply decks and cockpit, glassed. Mahogany rub-rail, gunwales, etc. Douglas Fir spars (hollow mast). All bronze fittings, mostly custom-made by Chatfield Marine.

    Bowsprit just now lengthened by 1.3m but we are undecided if that is a bit too much. We haven’t yet put the fittings back on until we decide!

    Camping/cruising interior -- two full-length bunks, space for portable lavatory (though Lavacs are fitted to sister ships) - Roger Dongray, the designer, installed a Baby Blake.

    Nanni 2 cylinder 10hp inboard (ca 25 hours), shaft driven fixed prop. Solar charging to start and 100Ah house battery.

    Maxwell anchor winch with wireless remote. Maxset anchor with chain and warp.

    Power salt-water wash down system.

    Main, staysail and job all by Hood.

    Aluminium two-axle braked trailer (October 2021)

    My friend, Paul, here in NZ (one of the world's leading junk rig sail designers and makers) won't be interested in a swap as he already has two junk rig boats, but he has given me permission to post this short video on Youtube advising that he is ready for a sale of his bigger junk rig boat -- check it out and contact him if keen.

    Thank you for letting readers know of another junk rig boat. Can you please delete your off topic comment here and post a separate For Sale thread for Paul's boat if he seriously wants to sell it.   I watched the entire 2:21 minute Youtube video.  It has almost no info about the boat and only about 20 seconds of video of the boat's deck and pilot house interior.  At the end the text says the boat "might even be for sale" and offers an email address.  You may wish to consider confirming with Paul that he seriously wants to advertise the boat for sale.  If so, it would help our readers enormously if Paul provided the standard information about the boat in that separate For Sale thread, plus some still photos, and made his contact info more prominent.  Bonus if you can make a Youtube video tour of the boat!  We welcome Paul's listing and want it to be productive and efficient for both Paul and our readers. Thank you.  -- Webmaster
