Broker Remarks

"Teko" is a Lorne Class 28 which was the brainchild of Builder and Designer James McGruer. McGruer & Company Ltd were established on the Clyde in 1911 and to this day the name is synonymous with beautifully built, cleverly designed, quality sailing vessels.
James McGruer's plan was to provide an "affordable" family cruiser. Whether this was achieved or not, he certainly provided the boating world with a craft that is still a head turner to this day.
"Teko" has a very interesting history and is the subject of an informative and excellent book written by architect and professional academic Douglas Cawthorne who's family owned the boat for over thirteen years.
Her present owner purchased her over 10 years ago when she wasn't in the best of conditions and has lovingly restored her to her former glory. His passion for single handed sailing has seen him travel extensively around the British coast, Brittany and the Channel Islands, to the Scottish Islands, St Kilda and the Baltic.
With no expense spared she is in excellent shape and ready for new adventures with a like minded new owner.
Currently ashore and under tarpaulin to preserve her good looks.

Beautifully appointed inside with combination of teak hardwoods and mahogany faced ply.
The interior is extensively varnished with contrasting white gloss painted coach roof.
Saloon is entered via the cockpit companionway.
Immediately to starboard is the galley area with cupboard storage, gas fuelled Plastimo Neptune 2000 oven with 2-burner hob and grill. Fresh water is stored in a 60 Litre tank filled from the cockpit. This gravity feeds into the cabin negating the need for energy consuming water pumps.
Opposite galley is a small chart area and navigation station with quarter/pilot berth aft. A fold out chart table with support leg aids chart work.

She has 5 berths, two in the forepeak, two in the saloon with lee cloths and a wide quarter berth.
The main saloon is situated forward of a partial bulkhead and features central drop leaved table with full length settee/berths to port and starboard. There is locker and shelved storage behind each saloon berth.
At the forward end of the port settee is a bulkhead mounted Taylor's paraffin fuelled heater. This highly efficient system has a separate tank situated adjacent to the marine heads.
Fore peak with privacy doors with two single berths port and starboard.
Aforementioned heads with wooden cover that lifts and lowers easily.
Interior has a good 5'10" at galley and saloon.
