    Laurent Giles - Vertue for sale

    Sailing BoatsClassic Sailing BoatsLaurent GilesVertue

    Natural Selection is a unique ocean-going gaff-rigged yacht based on a 1930s design by Laurent Giles and built to the highest standards at the International Boat Building College, Lowestoft.


    Her hull is iroko on oak frames with a solid mahogany deck, bronze fittings, mahogany interior.

    She has two full-length berths and standing headroom. Comfortably fitted with a paraffin Taylor stove and Ebersbacher diesel heater.


    Her 14hp engine is in excellent condition and well-maintained.

    In 2014, her previous owner spent £27 000 refurbishing her professionally to a high standard, using bronze fittings and master-crafted woodwork.

    She is ideal for single-handed sailing, with automated steering by the tiller.

    Due to failing health, I am reluctantly offering Natural Selection for sale.

    She will be available until 30th March 2020, after which I will renew her mooring on the River Frome, Wareham, Dorset and continue sailing for another season.

    I shall maintain her until I can find a suitable buyer (see 2020 planned maintenance schedule).

    She is in good condition and is being sailed regularly.

    I invite anyone interested to spend a few days sailing with me.

    After the sale, I will continue to offer advice and help out where I can, if desired.

    I have included a selection of photos, videos and documents on my website https://naturalselectionvertue.home.blog/...Read full description
