Talisman of Fambridge is a 1977 one off Gaff Schooner that was last surveyed in July 2016 at which time no problems were found. The current owners have had her for 14 years now and because they have been living on board her she is extremely well kitted out for it. She has standing room throughout and a whopping 7 foot in the galley. She has a Ford FSD 2500 Diesel engine that has done less than 200 hrs. Talismans is equipped with full diesel fired central heating, 4 ½ kilowatt radiators, two Dickinson Marine diesel stoves, one is for cooking and heating the second is just for heating, each can produce up to 15 Kw. Her 12 volt system is based on 8x 110 Amp Gel batteries, charged by two sterling Procharge 55 Amp units.
If you're coming from the mainland you can take the Red Jet fast passenger ferry from Southampton where we will be happy to meet you and take her round to see her.

Only when you step aboard her will you really experience how much space, yet cosy, this classic sailing boat is.
