Re: Cold Moulded Boats Illustrated Guide

Looks a nice boat, but from the pix she appears to be strip planked rther than could molded. Could be a combination of both, but that's unusual in boats that small.

Specifications from Sale Ad Listing

Description from Ad:
"The Fairlie 59 is the result of the fusion between the elegance and the comfort of a classic hull and the performance given by a latest generation rig and sails, that allows you to sail safely, with a reduced crew or with no crew, as she was designed to be single handled.
Her hull was built with cold moulded wood and epoxy resin, her frames and deck beams were laminated as one only piece, giving her a structural strength beyond the requirements of the loads that she has to withstand and with the 50% of her displacement in the led keel, together with a carbon fiber rig give her an optimal upright momentum that allows you to trim the sails to give her owner an unprecedented enjoyment with the sailing experience on board this boat."

Designer: Paul Spooner
Flag of Registry: United Kingdom
Keel: Full

LOA: 17.98 m

My Disclaimers and Requests

I have no financial or other connection to this boat or the seller.
I have not seen this boat in person, nor have I sailed on it.
As with any boat, it is a good idea to research the design to learn about how they sail, common problems and owner opinions.
As with any boat, it is smart to have a qualified yacht surveyor perform a survey of the boat to assess its condition.
I am posting this to help others find boats. This one caught my eye, and I hope this thread helps others find a good fit for them.
I hope this thread proves helpful to CF Members. If so, let me know, as it is nice to know the time spent on it has helped others.
IF you purchase this boat, let me know (a PM would be OK).
IF you purchase this boat, I would enjoy seeing it, or going for a sail on it, if I am ever in your area. Or, if you own a similar or sister boat send me a PM. I enjoy sailing on a wide variety of boats and would like to get some time on many designs, including this one.
