Dol­phin 31, a ‘mod­ern mini cruiser’

Yachting Monthly - - LETTERS - Ian Garth­waite

Re­gard­ing Fiona Hether­ton’s re­quest for ‘a mod­ern mini cruiser on a bud­get’ (Jul 17) may I sug­gest she looks at a Dol­phin 31? This was one of the most spa­cious, sea­wor­thy semi-dis­place­ment yachts built at that time (1976-82) by Rank Ma­rine. Only 40 were built so they’re not easy to find but I no­tice there is one for sale at the mo­ment ask­ing £12,500. There was one sold a year ago, which went for £10,000. I hope this may help in her search.

The Dol­phin 31 is a solid, sea­wor­thy, off­shore-ca­pa­ble cruiser and ex­cel­lent value at £10-15,000, says Ian Garth­waite

Roy Clare says the spar builder should have been con­sulted on the al­tered load­paths in­volved with this storm jib jury rig
