This is Fairy Queen, a Loch Fyne skiff now with a gaff cutter rig and currently afloat in southern Galway Bay, Ireland – and she’s for sale. The photos above were taken a few days ago.
The Fairy Queen is 35ft on the keel, 13ft in beam with a draft of 5ft 8in, and about 17tons unballasted, built in larch on oak, with a Douglas fir mast and a 72hp Ford D series engine.
The owners are looking for a croft or a patch of land in a remote part of the Highlands or the West Coast of Scotland – so some kind of exchange may be possible.
I’ve pasted some older photos below – as usual, click on the thumbnails for much larger images. If you’re interested and would like to contact the owners, drop me a line at email@example.com and I’ll let you have their contact details.
