Baltic Trader Gaff Ketch

United Kingdom Report

 Description

65"Baltic Trader Gaff Ketch Built in Sweden in 1914 as a commercial sailing cargo vessel, typical of many such working in Scandinavian waters. The design follows the usual pattern with a long keel, bluff bows and transom stern with the rudder hung outboard on the transom. The vessel was in Danish family ownership for many years having been first refitted by the family when she came out of commercial service in 1964. In early 1984 the vessel was damaged by fire and subsequently rebuilt. The deck, deck structures and interior all date from this 1984 post-fire rebuild. She changed hands again in Denmark in 1992 before she was bought by the present English owner in 2004 and brought under UK MCA legislation for charter vessels. In recent years she has had a replacement engine, new mizzen and new main mast plus associated rigging. A recent survey highlighted some areas of work which need to be done, and these can be detailed upon request. Certified VAT exempt within the EC. Registered UK flag Part 1.
