Overview:

The 1932 9-Ton Hillyard 'Billy Blue' offers a wide array of sailing opportunities due to her versatile Bermudan cutter rig. This provides her a balanced rig easily managed short-handed using a choice of sails to cope with any conditions. Enthusiastically restored from an empty hull with the mast and rigging, she is now presented in excellent cosmetic condition. It is rare to find wooden boats of this age in such condition. Hillyard’s of Littlehampton is now part of boat building’s folk-lore and these hand crafted vessels continue to find favour with the 'traditional sailor' entertaining the charms of solid wood construction and a feel factor rarely found in modern plastic boats. The exact number of yachts built by Hillyard's is not known but it could have been as many as 800 and there are records of around 600 with tonnages between 2.5 and 29. Recent works include a complete paint and varnish refit, recently replaced spray hood and cockpit cover. A full list of work is available.

Broker's Comments

Owner's Comments

"Built next to Arther Ransome's famous 'Nancy Blackett', Billy is a very sound and sea-kindly classic yacht. She has provided us with years of wonderful sailing, mainly on the South coast and across the Channel."
