I’ve been interested in wooden boats my entire life. Now we live in times of plastic and fast consumption and people have no time to enjoy the real beauty or value of wooden hull so the wooden hulls become less popular as it was 30-40 years ago.
The old generation of wooden sailboat lovers has either already passed away or have no time and energy to take care of those old handmade sailboats so such boats either become abandoned or are left to the fate and turns into “flying dutchman”.
I have several wooden boats – from small motor boats to 18-20 feet long sailboats and I know how much time it requires to take care of the boat that you love and which takes you on a safe boat tour in archipelago or the sea.
I couldn’t just pass by when I saw this little wooden sailboat, the classic English folk boat, which was swinging on the water so lonely, so abandoned in some small bay in Sweden. So I decided to become an owner of this boat and took it to Lithuania.
The boat was fully renovated during October 2017 and Juni 2019. It was a lot of work that required a lot of patience and time, but the boat is in a very good shape now.
The sailboat Matsya is renovated with exceptional materials, the boat has stationary internal diesel engine Volvo Penta MDI which helps a lot when you end up in bad weather or just enjoy of calm and still boat tour in archipelago, which at the same time makes easier to moor the boat or maneuver in marina.
Due to the low sink of 1,2 meters the boat suites very well for both – sailing in the rivers, channels and the sea. That was already tested in the summer of 2019.
This is a quite exceptional sailboat which is moored marina of small resort town Nida in Lithuania and which has already become a pride of local marina. No one can pass by the boat without stopping and admiring it.
Unfortunately, due to some personal reasons I have to look for a new owner to my beloved sailboat, someone who would love and appreciate it as much as I do.
