Little Dizzy

Dockrell Yachts made this solid little cruiser to last! This particular one has been professionally converted from the cutter rig to the sloop rig version. She has had much attention over the past 10 years.
We hope this specification will give you a positive overview of this fine little yacht. She is perfect to explore the UK waters & beyond.! Possible part exchange welcome.
LITTLE DIZZY has now sailed to our Bristol office from Watermouth Cove & is now available for any viewing!

A very solid fibre glass construction. An unusual solid & 3,200lb ballasted keel with a winged section which allows her to take the ground though for some this may be a little daunting! We have actually tested the Dockrell 27 ashore to see how stable/ secure this is and on a hard bottom she sits quite happily. To our knowledge “Little Dizzy” had been factory finished & not as a bare hull.
We are lucky to have additional support by way of the Aluminium beaching legs from the Yacht leg company to have been fitted in 2017. Another asset for those single handed sailors.
