My gorgeous larch 1966 Nordic Folkboat is now for sale due to the arrival of our larger boat. Filuren has everything that makes Folkboat sailing such a pleasure: simple and quick set up, deep and secure cockpit, and confidence inspiring handling with over 50% of the boats' weight hung on a long keel below the waterline. All that fun is packaged up in a stunningly beautiful varnished timber hull which always turns heads and makes people smile.
Having just been completely checked from stem to stern, all fastenings checked, hull stripped down and anti-fouled, she's tight as a drum and ready for another 50 years!
With room for 2 adults (and 2 smallish kids!) to over-night in the charming and comfortable interior with a small nav table which doubles as a spot to put the camp stove for coffee and sandwiches, secure drawers, a hanging locker for the wet weather gear and plenty of under seating storage. Everything you need for weekend explorations of Moreton Bay.
No electronics (and I mean none, there's a windex on the mast and a compass on the bulkhead) and that's it for instruments. Battened main sail and head sail both in very good condition and professionally laundered in 2015, timber mast and boom stripped down and revarnished in 2016, single spreader and stainless shrouds (all standing rigging renewed in 2014) with adjustable back stay & fore stay.
UPDATE 18/11 - Hull professionally stripped, prepared and anti-fouled, any suspect fastenings replaced, keel bolts checked, stem bolts doubled, minor water damage in interior repaired and revarnished, anti-fouled, cabin trunk timber replaced, new electrical panel installed for bilge pump and 12v supply, solar panel for charging.
Timber tiller, 2 winches, good cockpit locker storage, outboard on a sliding bracket for simple launch and retrieval, timber fore deck hatch, boom crutch and boom-kicker (new 2014), choice of cockpit traveler or single anchor point for mainsheet and two timber spinnaker poles.
A wonderfully reliable 5HP Tohatsu outboard and a complete boat cover (new 2014) complete the picture of a boat that's fabulous for sailers and young families; fast, safe, and fun.
