18ft clinker built fishing boat for sale, Devon

Alex Mears of Seaton, Devon-based boat builders HJ Mears and Son has written to let us know that one of the company’s long-term customers is selling his 18ft clinker-built fishing boat.

Built by HJ Mears in 1980, she is built from wych elm on English oak ribs. Alex says she’s very full – as the photos show – and perhaps two planks higher than most 18ft boats, which he says provides plenty of freeboard and safety.

She has been stored in a barn during the off-season, and has a Bukh DV20 twin cylinder inboard engine, a bespoke twin axle trailer, and a cover and mast.

The owner is asking £8,750 and she is available to view at HJ Mears’ yard.

HJ Mears are currently finishing off a 16ft Beer lugger for a customer  – and we’re promised some photos soon…

Frankly, I can’t imagine why anyone would /not/ hanker after something like this. With that hull and sail I suspect it will go like the clappers…

If anyone I know buys it, can I come for a ride please? Click on the image and enlarge it for details.

My thanks to Fowey boatbuilder Marcus Lewis for this one!
