For sale: Tiki 21, with outboard, trailer, mooring, and winter storage space.
Just finishing an extensive (and expensive) rebuild, September 2020 to date, including new foredecks, new tillers, partial new rear deck, new sliding hatches in garages, new locker hatches, new central decks sheathed on top and underneath (with engine mounting built around the 6hp Tohatsu outboard, centrally mounted for balance, and to keep prop in water at all times underway,) removal of old paint and primer, antifouling etc down to bare sheathing.
Repainted using SML single pack polyurethane paint on the decks (plus microbeads for non slip where needed), Blakes locker paint in bilges and lockers etc, Jotun Alkyd paint on the topsides, and Seaco self ablating antifouling.
Interior painted after fitting radiused corners to all floor hatch openings to deter stress cracks from forming in the corners (no corners, no cracks!) Upholstery fitted but requires final stitching to complete (temporarily usable as is.) Dorade vents at front and back of each cabin, inspired by the similar idea used on Pahis etc.
The main hatches are based on Rory McDougal's hatches in the famous circumnavigating 'Cookie'; the intention was to fit spray hoods too. The garages are removeable from inside.
Very low hours 6hp Tohatsu ultra long shaft outboard. External tank.
All running rigging, hull lashings recently replaced; the halyards in the photos are not the new ones. standing rigging stainless steel. New Allplas super heavy duty trampoline, and enough to make another net for behind the rear beam, mounting points on deck for netting forward of the front beam too.
Danforth anchor with chain and warp, various fenders and lots of spare rope etc.
Sails came with the boat (Jeckels main and jib, spare jib), they are useable, but could benefit from a trip to the sailmakers to freshen them up a bit. I intended to do that, then buy a new set, and keep the existing ones as spares. Dolphin striker not fitted yet as the stainless steel wire will be replaced.
Trailer with good bearings and tyres, and a wheeled dolly to help with loading/unloading. Also includes stub beams to mount hulls together on trailer.
Mooring comes with the boat if you want it; a fore and aft mooring in the river Axe south of Bristol UK, comes with weighted rope and chain, buoys etc to refurbish, as that was one of the jobs still to be done. Over winter storage for the boat on its trailer is available at no extra cost if needed.
Every square inch of this boat was gone through, all potential problem areas were cut out and rebuilt using SP Systems epoxy and marine ply, glasscloth sheathing, and biaxial cloth, all done indoors in a properly heated workspace, under supervision of a retired yacht surveyor.
All structural work well documented with many photos, diagrams, and descriptions, which I hope to collate into a word document in the next few days.
Basically, this is as close to an 'as new' boat and outboard as you can get without paying new prices, with a trailer, mooring, and winter storage if needed. The boat should hopefully only need the usual preventative maintenance for the next x number of years.
The only important item left on the 'to do' list is the replacement wire for the dolphin striker. I've also not yet fitted the port jib sheet track. Eyelets for lashing the tank to the deck are also needed, position to be decided. So a few very minor jobs to do when I next can.
I dread to think what the cost of building from new would be now; the rent for the premises where I did the structural work and painting, plus the electricity used, came to over £1800. I have receipts for all the materials used; I have yet to total them all up, but that will be in the thousands too.
