Broker Remarks

Tuloa was owned for over 30 years by the famous yachtsman Harry Mitchell. After a failed attempt in 1972, he completed the 1976 OSTAR (Observer Single Handed Transatlantic Race) from Plymouth to New York sailing Tuloa through two severe and three moderate depressions that caused 50 of the 125 participating boats to retire, and sinking two of them. Harry died in 1995, aged 70, whilst competing in the BOC round the world race in his 40-foot boat Henry Hornblower, vanishing without trace in the Southern Ocean. A year later, Harry's Tuloa, which had been in a shed for eight years, was sold. As is so often the case, a well intentioned restoration was attempted by the new owner but not completed, Tuloa being offered for sale as a half completed project in 2005. The interior at this point had been dismantled. It's not been reinstated since, unfortunately. The current owner has reluctantly admitted that saving the boat is beyond him, and a new owner is sought.

Please come forward with an offer.

Although neglected and her interior dismantled, the hull is robust, and looks free of rot.
