    Price is  €4K.  Ready to sail immediately.

    Cruised every summer, including 2020.  Fresh antifoul. 

    An excellent boat in every respect. 

    Currently on the hard in north Holland (sailed from Portsmouth). 

    No trailer.

    Innovative split-junk rig with good performance in all airs, including light ones.

    Hebridean wind vane self-steering, built of American oak in 2018

    from the H1 complete kit:

    Honda BF5 outboard with very few hours use from new.

    Hull in very good condition.

    Pleasant and practical cabin, which I have enjoyed living in, while cruising

    for the last 4 summers.

    Inexpensive pontoon mooring can be transferred (North Holland)

    with winter secure on the hard.

    More details at

    Having sailed with Tammy Norie, Emmelène is in this video,

    especially around the 10’ mark:

    My email address is:

    Reason for sale: very sadly and suddenly, my dad died in 2020

    - and I am now taking care of my mum. 

    This means my time and financial resources have to be

    diverted elsewhere than cruising.

    So sad to hear your selling up Chris!

    Very good that you are looking after / taking care of your mother in difficult times.

    If there is anything I can do to assist in selling Emmelene, please let me know.

    Best regards,

    Very sorry to hear that Chris.

    Personally I would like a good shape Coromandel, but the current situation is not in my favour now to get one. Hope your boat finds a owner soon.

    Several of you asked me to make a short video because the pandemic travel regulations mean that you can't come to Holland to view the boat.

    So I took this video last week (August 2021).   

    In case it's not obvious, the hole under the stern is the outboard-motor well.

    And the small gaps in the antifoul are simply where the straps went when the yard lifted her.  The underside is in good nick.

    I hope this video proves useful to you:
