Enterprise 13354 ‘Dreamweaver’ £950
Bought and restored by me during the winter/spring of 2018. Unable to sail during the summer due to the drought causing the reservoir to be closed from late June for the rest of the year. Stored indoors over the winter she eventually made it on to the water 51 years after she was built. I did research some of the history from The Enterprise Association and discovered the following;
- Enterprise 13354 was built in May 1968 by D Tyson & Aln Boatyard (I am told that The Aln boatyard was renowned for it’s boat building)
- The boat was original built for / owned by a member at Tynemouth Sailing Club
- The last record we have on file for your boat is August 1985 when the boat was sold to a member at St Marys Loch Sailing Club
The reason for the sale is simple. I am new to sailing and anyone who knows the Enterprise they can be a handful. I just might be better with something a little more forgiving. The biggest issue for me after growing into sailing over the past 2 years is the rear main sheet. I really want a boat with a centre main sheet which I am far more comfortable handling yet I still want a boat that can offer some fun. I don’t really want to alter the system here that the boat was designed for.
A few points to add;
There are two sets of sails. The numbered sails are in very good condition. No damage and despite the last photograph in the sun they are still a lovely colour blue (not faded like some older sails). The second set are excellent – still crisp and the better set.
There is a spare boom. The mast was also replaced as the rollers at the head and foot had seized. You are welcome to the spare mast for parts or repair.
The boat comes with a road trailer and launch trolley (launch trolley slides on to the trailer). All wheels and tyres are in good condition.
All airbags are in working order.
New jib sheet and main sheet in excellent condition.
Excellent cover – like new.
If there are any questions please don’t hesitate to ask. Viewing welcome and she is stored near Oldham at Dovestones Sailing Club.
