New Listing: 30ft OCEAN CLASS KETCH – Wallasea Bay Yacht Station 1948 – Good Example – Lying: Chichester Harbour




1948 Wallasea Bay Ocean Class 30 Ketch. Originally built as a sloop, OCEAN DUNDAS was converted to a ketch in the 1960's. Designed by A A Trueman.
A really charming boat, Ocean Dundas was one of a number of vessels built at the Wallasea Bay Yacht Station Ltd in the post war years. A pretty boat with a distinct canoe stern and sloping coachroof, 'Ocean Dundas' has been used for local Solent sailing since the current owners purchased the boat from the Essex coast in 2016.
Maintained as necessary by a wooden boat specialist during her time at Birdham Pool Marina, this boat is in a smart and tidy condition, ready for new owners.
