For sale 50% share in Piper No.48 ‘Ailsa’
As featured extensively in the best-selling book ‘The Piper Calls the Tune’
Half share to a mutually agreeable party for about £2,400. Any partnership must be based in
Holy Loch. The half share comes with the lion’s share of boat for HLSC races and Piper
Regattas since I don’t race.
All in end-of-season condition at the present time but she will be ‘great again’ in the spring
(eat your heart out America).
Hull: 1973 Moulded by Mechans in Clydebank, completed by Robertson’s of Sandbank.
within the next few years but being white on a white gel coat can be buffed up for another
season and look ok. Bottom free from paint build-up
since she was shot blasted. Micron antifouling in
dark blue – minimal coating. Silver boot-top. Rudder
is of wood and is ok but could do with being
sheathed in fibreglass at some point.
Deck: neat and decent rather than excellent. Some
flex but test cores have shown that this is local delaminating
of top layer and inside is dry and sound.
Resin injection carried out in key areas. Teak woodwork
is a bit worn and will require local refastening
and repair at some point to look A1.
Interior: see photos in Piper book - white gloss, all
bullheads capped with varnished mahogany sections.
Laminated central floorboard. Centre mainsheet
track thwart (non-structural) removed and
replaced by post similar to R24 to facilitate single handed
Spars: One of the few original Proctor K mast still
standing and a fairly recent Kemp boom with provision
for slab reefing. Alloy spinnaker pole – single string hoist
Racing sails: see photos from 2016 50th Regatta – these are pampered and extremely good
sails. Used a handful of times since 2009; prior to that two seasons use. Extra genoa (current
cut) used for two regattas only. All by Nicholson-Hughes plus a little-used flatter cut spinnaker
by Saturn Sails. These sails have been stored under the bed since 2007. Due to class rules
on materials, continuity of shape profiles and the recent reversion to cross-cut seaming they
are still current in cut and seaming.
Cruising sails: Serviceable mainsail with slab reefing by Amati (see cruising photos). Old
working jib (repaired but stout). Old Spinnaker. Old boom-cover (looks fine inside-out)
Running rigging, blocks, Harken ratchet blocks, winches and control lines – all in good condition.
Bilge pump requires a new diaphragm. Systems can be seen on 2016 photos. Bruce type
anchor, warps, etc. Sewn red ensign and staff.
Launching bogie and cradle (recently repaired at great expense)
Rubber dinghy recently cremated in shed fire, but that will be replaced.
Mooring (currently off Kilmun) Two big mushrooms, heavy bridle and chain to buoy. Could
move to Sandbank if there was an available slot.

Piper OD for sale with good trailer. "Stormpiper" No1. built 1966
The first fibreglass Piper built from the classic David Boyd design. This Piper has had very few owners considering her age, but each owner has given her the TLC she deserves.
New Mast and Rigging in 2013. Topsides painted 2013. Recent good survey which can be viewed by serious buyers. Good racing sails but possibly could do with a new mainsail if new owner wishes to race her competitively. Genoa and Spinnaker in good order.
The Piper was not in the water in 2015 and is still in winter storage undercover. She is situated near to Sandbank, Argyll the birthplace of the Piper fleet.
