We sailed Zephon down from the shetlands in the summer of 2016.

Zephon went into build just before world war II and wasn't finished until the late 1940s. The timber used was of very good quality and I believe lots of original remains, still in very god condition. She is a Zyklon, designed by Dr Harrison Butler and built by someone in Wales.

She has engine feet and beds for a Yanmar 1GM10, however the engine has been removed. I will happily install another like engine for a buyer. Currently we sail her engineless and have successfully played around in the scillies, albeit not without sweaty brows. A rowlock is mounted on the transom and a sculling oar can follow in the sale.

The mainsail is ok. The shape is better than the sail looks and it performs well. My favourite jib is the pinky one that sits well on either forestay. There are two light wind sails and I think three headsails of varying quality and condition. She can be sailed as a cutter but the new bowsprit is so short (despite it being longer than before) that it's better just to choose a stay for the point of sail. Off the wind the outer stay works well. A traveller would be a nice addition to fine tune the balance.

The taylor stove needs a little attention but is all there. My experience of these stoves makes me slightly wary of them. It works really well when it's not blocked, leaking, flaring up, too hot to re-light or if there's too much movement. At your own peril!

New through bolted galvanised stem head fitting. New oregon pine bow sprit. New VHF antenna. New stainless forestays. One large CQR, one small CQR, one fishermans Anchor, 2* 30m lengths of 3/8" galvanised chain. DSC boat VHF. auto-bilgepump on a separate float switch. 10w (I think) marine Solar panel. All navlights. Internal LED lighting.

I have some security equipment that may be bought separately if necessary. However I'm happy to keep it. This includes: a 4 man life raft bought in 2016, Handheld ICOM DSC VHF, lifejacket/s, flares.

She is afloat in Falmouth.

If I've forgotten anything, please just get in touch.
