For Sale

Bush Baby, of Burnes boatyard Bosham

Price £11,500 ono

Bush Baby is a four berth, 26 foot sailing yacht, and one of the better examples of the classic SCOD. Designed for cruising and racing, she is currently moored in Chichester harbour, where she is based, and is sailed monthly around the Solent. Although we are still enjoying sailing Bush Baby and exploring the south coast in her, we are also planning ahead to next August when we shall be leaving the UK.
SCOD Bush Baby

We are therefore looking for someone who wishes to acquire a full or partial stake in her, conscious that finding the right buyer and making transfer arrangements may take time. Bush Baby is very economic to run, benefiting from reduced marina fees given her smaller length, and from low fuel consumption given the small 12HP engine. She has been very well maintained over the last ten years and in Spring 2014 had a substantial engine and aesthetic overhaul. Heads, batteries, safety equipment, sail covers, two burner stove, autohelm, solar panel and many other parts were replaced new as part of this.

This is a good opportunity for anyone who appreciates classic wooden boats and is looking for an economical boat to race or cruise in sheltered or more challenging waters. A surveyors report, maintenance log, and more photographs are available on request.
