"The Galley of Lorne", TSDY by Frederick Parker Lying  Essex

Deck Gear and Sail


The Galley of Lorne is heavily built and has particularly good directional stability by virtue of her long keel. She will operate and steer perfectly well on one engine since she is fitted with twin rudders. Both water tanks and fuel tanks have a balance pipe, but it is the practise to have the fuel balance pipe stopcock turned off so that each engine runs from its own dedicated fuel tank. There are deck fillers for each fuel and water tank. 

Massive bronze cleats

She has cruised extensively in France, Belgium, Holland and the U.K. South and East Coasts covering over a thousand miles each season. The Galley of Lorne is a safe dry and warm boat and she travels in the right direction all the time.

Comprehensive documentation of all systems 

A place for everything and everything in its place



Much of the original documentation and plans have been retained

Sadly, as the husband has passed away, The Galley of Lorne is looking for a new owner.
