    DC Blakes & Sons - Folkboat for sale

    Sailing BoatsYachtsDC Blakes & SonsFolkboat

    DC Blakes & Sons Folkboat for sale lying ashore in Dartmouth, Devon. This boat is a lovely example, having had many upgrades in her current ownership including new engine, wind generator, webasto heating and many others. These boats are noted for their seaworthy character, they have regularly been raced in winds of 40 knots and often carries full sail in 20-25, this example is more set up for cruising being very well appointed inside but would be more than useful around the cans should you choose to use her for some club racing.

    Owners Comments 



    Encounter is a cruising Folkboat built in the UK in 1986 by D C Blake and sons. She is good  condition having been well maintained. A copy of the 2018 survey is available.  Encounter does not have a spartan interior, in fact her accommodation is both comfortable and  well appointed. She has just been re painted in Awl gripped by Dart Haven and is looking superb who also serviced the rudder bushes, new antifoul by Darthaven. The original engine has been replaced with a modern Beta 14hp with only 180 hrs use. The  engine drives a Brunton feathering propeller. All control lines have been led aft to the cockpit  and she can be sailed single handed. Encounter has beaching legs and by separate  negotiation a substantial cradle
