Sailing Boat For Sale

We have a Scorpion Dinghy for sale . . .
Partially completed restoration project.

The details of the boat for sale are listed below :-
  • Scorpion sailing dinghy (refurb project). Price £400 or nearest offer.

  • Included in sale:
    Spars (wooden tiller and boom)
    Sails (2 x main sail, 1 x jib, 2 x spinnaker)
    Boat cover
    Road trailer
    Folding launch trailer
    Spinnaker poles x2
  • Selling Scorpion dinghy ‘Jupiter’ – perfect for a refurbishment project. I’ve had this boat since 2014 and it was in use until 2018. Since then its been stored in a garage. The boat was built in the 1960’s and retired from use by the previous owner in the 1980’s I think. It is need of an overhaul of fixtures and fittings as can be expected of a boat this age. I’ve done some bits ad hoc as they’ve failed but the boat would benefit from someone with more time/experience than me to return her to her former glory. The boat is a great sail – fun and sporty!
  • Tiller/rudder mount has been replaced and tiller repaired.
    New buoyancy tank inspection hatches fitted.
  • New pulley wheels at base of mast.
  • Points to note:
    Some discoloration (perhaps delamination?) of ply on decking in patches has occurred since storing.Delamination around starboard shroud deck fixing.
  • Main sail is in functioning condition but a bit tired – one of the batten pouches has split and been repaired – another has since done the same so will need stitched.
  • A cleat for tying off main halyard came off the mast on last use.
  • Looking for £400 ONO – really I’d just like to see the boat back on the water so happy to accept reasonable offers.
    Boat is in Stirling (Cambusbarron).

    Happy for buyers to view before buying.
  • Sail number suggests 1969 as the age of the boat.
