The Goose is now up for sale.


Recommended Posts

For sale


£18,000 ono


Mk 1 Bounty Buccaneer 44



Originally built in 1964 as a holiday hire boat the Goose is an ideal boat for holidays but also as a live-aboard.


Purchased by us in 2005, we have completely gutted her, replacing the engine, added central heating, a new galley, shower room and cabin. But there are still a few minor jobs to be completed: she needs painting outside and some GRP work is required on the front deck. The hull is sound.


All side and rear windows have been taken out and resealed. Some trims still to be finished. Both front windows have cracked due to being on a tidal mooring. They do not leak as they are laminated.


This is a light, bright boat with 12 volt lighting to all rooms.


There is mains power to numerous power points when on shore line. FAF 25 Battery charger, charges up to 3 banks of batteries.




Purchased new - Sole Engine installed in 2013. It has only completed about 100 miles.


There is a problem with the drive at the moment, possibly caused by the prop working loose. The Woodruff key may be missing but due to health reasons I have been unable to investigate further.


(If time permits this will be done in the near future).


Heating/hot water system


Alde compact boiler system which supplies heating via 3 radiators in the saloon, shower room and cabin. It supplies the hot water for the galley and shower room.


Shower room


Fitted with Leesan 12 volt pump out toilet, home style pan, with tank, but not all the fittings, as we use her on tidal water, and at present we can pump over the side.


Shower cubicle with Marine grade shower control. Shower curtain.


Built in vanity unit with ample storage for towels, toiletries etc.  White porcelain sink with chrome taps.


Large mirror with concealed lighting.






Steering and boat control panel.


Banquette seating area designed to become a double bed. Brand new upholstered cushions fitted by Jagara Marine Covers in August 2015.


Various shelves for storage. Space for wall mounted T.V. Cupboard for batteries.  Brass spotlights and numerous electric sockets.


Sliding roof fitted with new external cover by Jagara Marine Covers August 2015.




Range of white base units comprising of 5 cupboards and a drawer unit. Stainless steel sink and drainer. Chrome mixer tap. Grey worktops.


Statesman gas cooker, 18 months old with 4 rings, oven with integral grill, electric ignition and pan storage.


Fridge with small freezer box.


Beko washing machine (purchased 2014) and a compact White Knight tumble drier situated in the ‘boiler’ room. This is a small area between the saloon and shower room which houses the boiler and has some storage space for dry food etc.




Purpose built double bed with storage beneath. A ‘Dreams’ memory foam mattress which can be removed if not required.


White fitted wardrobe, cupboard and drawer units trimmed with oak. Small dressing table area in oak.


New curtains to rear and side windows. Walls and ceiling panelled with tongue and groove.  Crome reading lights, ceiling light and small strip light.


Door giving access to rear deck.


She is currently on a rise and fall mooring in Sutton Wharf, Rochford, Essex.

It would be up to Nigal the Manager as to whether you can take over the Mooring, but can't see any reason why not.

Suttons Wharf is a working boat yard, always something going on, full of helpful people, who know what there talking about, and will make you feel at home.

1 mile to both Southend Airport, and station, which is on the Southend to Liverpool line, about 1 hour to London.
Cheap moorings, for the Goose is £1500, liveaboard will be more, but not that much more.

I will take some new pictures on Tuesday.
