English

Grey Merlin is a David Still design/concept on a Roxane 29 Nigel Irens design hull. Traditional style cruising yacht with a good turn of speed, lifting centreboard with lugger/yawl rig (Mizzen currently removed), fast fun sailor with versatile draught options perfect for creek hoping and serious coastal sailing. Only 20 of these hulls were ever made, and made quite an impact among the yachting fraternity, now with a strong following with the “Roxane and Romilly” owners club/website. This yacht was a front page feature in the PBO in 1997(report available). Many recent updates including New Beta 20 engine, Spinlock deck organisers, Garmin chart plotter, Horizon VHF, New galley and much more. A very rare opportunity to acquire this unique head turner. 2015 survey available by request.

OWNERS COMMENTS:

We purchased “Grey Merlin” in July 2015 when she had been ashore for a number of years, whilst her owner made up his mind to sell. Back then she was looking pretty sorry for herself then with a rusty Lister diesel, which worked but looked terrible.

Since then she has had a new engine and a very considerable amount of work done on her, getting on for £10k spent, and now looking a lot better all round for it.

Grey Merlin is perfect for day sailing, short cruises, estuary sailing etc, but for us she felt a little too small out in the Atlantic, which is now what we want to do and why we are now planning to buy a bigger boat.

We have found her to be a pretty quick boat and great fun to sail (see the reviews), and makes overall a very versatile cruiser with the plate up draws only 0.76 m and 1.75m when down.

There were about 20 or so of these Roxane hulls built, and there is a fair amount of info on these yachts that can be found, along with the other conventionally rigged variant- Roxane of Restronguet on the Roxanne-romilly.co.uk website.

You can still in theory buy a new one, http://www.romilly.nl/roxane.html but it would be pretty expensive these days, (costing over £85,000 back in 1997).

Sadly only one of these David Still versions “Grey Merlin” were built, deemed to be even more expensive than the standards and therefore not viable to reproduce.

Grey Merlin was featured on the front cover of Practical Boat Owner in January 1997.

ADDITIONAL COMENTS:

Writing in Practical Boat Owner in January 1997 (the boat featured on the front cover) David Harding wrote of Grey Merlin “From a distance, she has the appearance of a real old- timer …. Only when you get closer do you see the slippery looking grp hull and those dished topsides which give her a narrow waterline beam. Then you see her catch a gust of wind and accelerate like a dinghy, leaving hardly any wake”. He said she is “a unique boat which, in some ways, breaks every rule in the book but gets away with it.” For the full, glowing review see http://www.romilly.nl/assets/roxane-practical-boat-owner-jan-97-blue-merlin.pdf

Grey Merlin is built on a Nigel Irens designed “Roxanne” hull but unlike her Roxanne sisters she has a cutter rig, with a bowsprit and gennaker. She has excellent sailing qualities, particularly on the reach. With the centre plate up she draws only 76 cm and, when legs are bolted on, can take the ground with the hull protected by the cast iron keel.
