Hi all,

Looking to purchase my first Merlin and looking to spend around £1000. Happy to do some work etc on the boat. I have emailed several people who are advertising on the website however it seems they have all sold.

Atlantis was John Stokes last Merlin and was kept in slings above the rescue boats under the clubhouse at Ranelagh and maintained in pretty immaculate condition from new when I last saw it.  If you are sailing inland and on the heavier end of the weight range it would be hard to find a better 1st Merlin though the NSM2 is not as quick offwind as the flatter modern boats.

I was the original owner of 3288 Atlantis. It is a Rowsell built NSM 2. She was a very pretty boat and I know John Stokes kept her in great condition. Would be a great first boat

Edward 3340

Rich - I have 3340 - Silver Dollar -  a very beautiful Morrison built NSM3 in excellent condition except the need for a minor gunwhale repair, needs glue only and is booked in to be done. Happy to negotiate around that. With it fixed  I would be looking around £1200.  

Alloy rig, 1 good set of sails covers combi trailer, both longer and shorter rudder (for Broads use), - the boat is presently dry stored in Norfolk. I am unlikely to sail this again due to ill health. Phone me 07771 883406 or email edwardgilder at

I can deliver reasonable distance.
