Seakers of Weymouth is delighted to present this rare example of a Longshore 16 in immaculate condition with its own trailer.

The Longshore 16 is a classic double ended, standing lug rigged boat with large rudder and long ballasted keel, very stable and easy to sail.

The Longshore 16 is a traditionally designed 16 foot trailer-sailer. Good looking, well built, very stable, simple to launch and sail - she is ideal for harbour, estuary, and coastal sailing, while sturdy enough to endure stronger winds or attempt more adventurous passages.

The makers said that the design is based on a Portpatrick fishing boat - double ended (ie pointed at both ends) with a hatch opening to a large cabin (which would have been the hold in the original design).

She is constructed from GRP but has teak-laid decks and teak gunnel cappings. The hull has wide clinker-style lands and the mast and yard are Carbon fibre. Many metal fittings - fairleads, cleats, rudder hinges, furling gear are bronze.

A horizontal sliding hatch opens to a cosy cabin. The cabin is ideal for storing all the stuff you need for sailing - picnic, oilies, flares - but is large enough to store an inflatable dinghy (when deflated), bodyboards, etc. It is also an excellent safe space to store children, who love hiding down below. It will even sleep 2 (provided you are good friends!)

The build quality and attention to detail are superb. Altogether, she is a very attractive boat.


Mechanical
2HP outboard engine, mounted in an inboard engine well. The Engine stows in the outboard locker when not in use.

Sails & Rig
Rig is standing lug mainsail with a jib. Sails are made from Dacron. The mainsail is loose-footed (ie no boom to knock you overboard when gybing). The small jib hanks on to the forestay and has a roller furler.
The main has two sets of reefing points.
The Carbon fibre mast is lightweight and easy to step and has a stainless wire forestay.
The yard is a two part Carbon fibre unit which will fit inside the cabin.
All running rigging is Hempex synthetic hemp rope.


Deck & General
Total weight of boat and trailer is 750kg, so can be towed by a medium sized family car.
The 18” draft makes launching and recovery easy.
In June 2021 two new sets of wheels and tyres were purchased. There are two boat covers.
The forward anchor locker contains an anchor, chain and warp.
