Tideway Dinghy TW 503, 12ft de-luxe

Dark blue hull, cream interior, dark red sails.  Built by Tideway Dinghies, Maldon, in June 2007 to owner’s specification.  I bought it from him in 2015 but have not used it since due to a disability. The owner claimed it was kept garaged from new and only used on four occasions; hence the reason for purchase.  The boat is in excellent condition with felt padding used for protection, including a case for the rudder.  Since purchase I have kept the mast indoors with the sail not even having been unrolled. Varnished foredeck with locker; aft locker filled with foam (boat originally supplied without buoyancy bags): four new Holt bags now fitted.  Sovereign combi-trailer in excellent condition:  cover:  twin topping lift:  oars:  brass rowlocks:  boathook:  burgee:  outboard engine mount (evidence of it having been fitted to TW503, but not apparently used on it):  security trailer lock:  anchor.  Included is the original 24 page owners manual.

Many extras are included since I am retiring from sailing: eg. life jackets; sailing shoes; gloves; new ropes; small anchor. 

For extra £150, a Suzuki 2.2 outboard is offered, (bought new, I have used it only three times).

 Tideway Deluxe ‘Emily’ for sale – o.i.r.o £2500

clivepadgett@hotmail.com  Dorchester, Dorset


I am reluctantly selling my much loved Tideway (Deluxe) which has been in my possession for seven years having been extensively restored by my wife’s godfather. Sadly I have not had the time in the last few seasons to give her the sailing she deserves due to trading up to a keel boat, so I am looking for a good home for her. Emily has spent most of this time dry stored under cover, with recent external painting. She comes with good equipment and a decent roadworthy trailer. Please contact me on the above email if you wish for more information - Clive
