Bristol 45.5 for Sale Bristol 29.9, Velella for Sale  
My name is Ed McGrath, I am the owner of McGrath Yachts in Northern California.   I have been appointed the central agent for a remarkable Bristol 45.5  here is a yacht world link to the boat: 

Bristol 45.5

The current owner has had the boat for 20 years!  When you step in the interior, you will feel like you entered a time machine, because the boat is in remarkable condition.  The beautiful blue hull was painted about 8 years ago.  The sails are only a couple of years old and a new furling boom was installed. The electronics are dates, other wise this boat would be considered in Bristol Condition.

I would like to add this boat to the Bristol Owner's Web site.  Please tell me how to do that.

Thank you for time!

Sails for Bristol 32

Bristol 27 Sails

After the unfortunate loss of our Bristol 32 in Hurricane Ernesto, we have sails available for any B32 owner who wants to pay for shipping or can pick them up. None of these are new, I had just had new sails made a few months prior to loosing the boat and those were shredded in the storm. I had these available on my boat as back-ups. I would love to have someone be able to use these still serviceable sails.

Original Main:   fair condition, shape is not great but ok as a back up
Headsail 1:       good condition
Headsail 2:       good condition
Spinnaker:        fair to questionable
I have three sails from a 1966 Bristol 27 weekender (hull #16) made by Ratsey Lapthorn. Two are jibs in excellent condition. One mainsail that has some damage from being stored improperly. I also have all the original sailbags from the manufacturer.  The bigger jib measures 17'2" foot and 31'6" luff. The smaller jib is 9'10" foot and 27'4" luff. The mainsails damage is limited to a few small holes rubbed through the canvas by the boom it was wrapped around in storage. Otherwise it would be in excellent shape also. I would like to sell them as a set but will consider selling individually. For pictures or questions please contact me at

1966, tiller, Yamaha 9.9 electric start, excellent Manchester main and genoa, Harken roller furling. Although most Weekenders came without a galley, "Marmara II" appears to have had one factory-installed athwartships at the forward end of the main cabin over the settees. To port is an Origo 3000 alcohol stove with work surface outboard, mounted teak utensil rack and storage locker below. To starboard is a stainless sink with manual freshwater pump and storage locker underneath. Owner improvements also include a cockpit locker-mounted manual bilge pump, stainless stern pulpit, new vinyl cushion covers throughout and teak cockpit grates.

"Marmara II" has given her owner enjoyable decades of service, but due to medical reasons she has been out of the water the last two seasons. We are anxious to find her a new home and new life.

Price: $9,200
