‘Timboline’ is one of the popular 12 ton centre-cockpit sloops designed and built by the well known Hillyard yard on the River Arun in Littlehampton. These successful double-enders have achieved a world-wide reputation for voyaging anywhere with reliability and comfort.  In 1961 Gareth Magraw was ‘ Timboline’s’ first registered owner who stationed the vessel at Itchenor.  In the late 1960’s he sold her to Wilfred Brooks who moored ‘ Timboline’ at Chichester.  The following year he sold the vessel to Charles Jermyn of Cork and ‘ Timboline’ has since remained in Southern Ireland for almost forty years.
