The North Sea 24 was a very successful design from Kim Holman. This boat has been single handed to the Azores and back and sailed many thousands of miles with a small crew. Unfortunately she has been neglected in recent years and needs a new competent owner to take her and carry out the necessary repairs. Full list of work required and detailed recent photos are available on request.

Wooden Ships Comments
North Sea 24 designed by Kim Holman, this one was built by Ken Brown Boats of Portsmouth in 1968. In present ownership for many years and was a very well cared for yacht and she was sailed single handed to the Azores at one stage. Unfortunately family circumstances have caused her to be slightly neglected in recent years and she now needs some significant work. Full details of what is required are available on request.
The North Sea 24 is a highly regarded design from Kim Holman who was a prolific and highly acclaimed designer responsible for some very successful yachts. This design is another typical example of his work with slightly understated yet pretty lines and impeccable manners at sea.
A perfect boat for the enthusiastic amateur boat builder to take on, there has been a lot of good work gone into her in recent years so she is a good basis for a project yacht.
