With the sad passing of shipwright partner Clive Dunn, Leon Erwee and family are now sole owners of HMS Bounty and have decided to put her on the market. She was commandeered by the Royal Navy in the war years and earned registry with the British Merchant fleet and can therefore fly the flag.

Pricing information will be on request.

Designed by W.L. Bosman, this vessel was built in Cape Town late last century and still displays it’s builder’s plaque.

The steering mechanism has seized and there is no battery with the boat. However, the space for a small battery is neatly integrated into the driver’s seat with a wooden tray for the petrol tank (a plastic tank is included in the sale).

The navigation lights are original and fairly unique in style, while the anchor light is missing and the internal cabin light damaged. Overall the boat is in a fair condition.

This is a pretty boat, versatile and sea worthy. The forward area could house a cabin. The engine sits high in the mid section and could be swopped for an outboard in a well to make way for more comfortable seating arrangements. The possibilities are numerous, but the temptation is to keep her exactly as she was intended to be, to preserve that something special that you can’t help feeling in her midst.
