Winford Model Yachts were made by Kingswinford Forge Ltd in the 1920's

Little else is known about this particular manufacturer.

The hulls were made from seamless steel with wooden keels fitted with lead ballast. The keels were bolted through the hulls and could be changed depending on the size of the rig being used and the sailing conditions.

This suggests that they were quite sophisticated racing yachts and would have been very expensive to buy new.

This may explain why they are now very rare. This is the first Winford we have been able to offer for sale and apart from one on an internet auction site only the second we have seen.

The hull is in very good condition with no damage just some scratches in the paintwork. It is quite heavy and combined with a bowsprit suggests that the rig must have been substantial. 

The wooden deck is in good condition and it appears that all the deck fittings are present and original. 

If you would like further photos of her condition please do not hesitate to ask.
