Only one made in the world, molds were lost in a fire after she was built. The Longshore range is based upon the rugged lines of the Shetland Island boats of the North Atlantic Ocean. Need I say more?

Sturdily built in GRP, the Scandinavian influence is readily apparent in the double ended hull, flared topsides and wide clinker planks. The decks are laid with teak and the fittings are all bronze, contributing to the boats overall quality appearance. A teak central hatch leads to the accommodation area below, which is large enough to sleep two people.

With a pedigree that evolved in North Atlantic waters, the Longshore 17 is a seaworthy craft suitable for short sea passages or coasting. Its long keel keeps her directionally stable and ballasted to make her self righting. Safety is further enhanced by the provision of buoyancy chambers. The rig is a standing lug with a small jib; the mainsail being loose footed for safety with two reef points. The lug sail rig gives good light wind performance as well as allowing full sail to be carried in a stiff breeze.

The Longshore 17 comes into its own in shallow waters. With a draft of just 18 inches and an ability to tack through 80 degrees, it is ideal for exploring estuaries, creeks, rivers and lakes. By loosening the forstay, the light carbon fibre mast can easily be lowered for passing under bridges. Thus the L17 can be seen to be completely versatile.

-Shallow draft, A long straight keel without the diasdvatanles of a centerboard casing intruding into accommodation and loss of performance when board raised for shallow water.

-Carbon Fibre Mast, the mast weighs only 10-20 lbs and has no standing rigging which allows fast and easy setup when launching.

-Easily trailered, the use of modern lightweight materials such as carbon fibre and light weight core material in construction lead to a low weight high strength boat that can be easily trailered and launched single handed.

-Highest quality finish, with teak laid decks, cappings are Iroko/Teak solid bronze fittings and port holes.

Trailer is in great shape and ready to go anywhere. Have had a Drascombe Lugger as well as Ian Oughtred Caledonia Yawl and this one is the perfect in between plus a well needed cabin to the mix. Looking to buy a bigger boat for my growing family. Thank you for looking!
