Don't be put off by the age of a Tinker - if looked after they can last forever!

Tinkers are no longer being manufactured, so a good place to get one is here!

Tinker Tramp
£425
Tunbridge Wells, Kent.
(ad placed 10/04/2021)
Classic Tinker Tramp in very serviceable condition.  Built in 1989 by Andrew Butt, only one owner from new, last serviced professionally in December 2017 by Rib Repair (receipt available).

Stored under cover most of its life.  Hardware is all original, but not all the rigging.  Floor recently painted, oars varnished.  The outer chambers have the screw-in valves, the inner ones the newer push-button ones.

I have used her as a tender to various boats over 30+ years and am selling her because I have finally purchased a hard dinghy as my boat is further from the dinghy launching place.

The sails and sailing equipment have only ever been used a few times.  Jib is striped, the mainsail is red, both by Sanders of Lymington.

The photos were taken 5th April 2021.

Includes (all in good condition except where stated):
  • Tinker Tramp dinghy
  • Two oars with rowlocks
  • Painter
  • Flexible strut to brace bow canopy
  • Protective plates for outboard
  • Pump
  • Spare valves for outer chambers (these are old replaced ones, but good as spares)
  • Tiller
  • Daggerboard
  • Three-piece mast (one u-bolt needs riveting back on - see photo)
  • Boom
  • Red mainsail and striped jib & attachment ropes (cringles slightly corroded but not broken)
  • Three battens
  • Standing and running rigging, shackles, mainsail block (not all rigging is original)

I may be able to help with delivery in southern England by mutual agreement.

Price £425.

Tinker Tramp
£600 o.v.n.o.
Deal, Kent.
(ad placed 02/04/2021)
Classic Tinker Tramp in very serviceable condition.

It is the liferaft version though I no longer have the canopy.  However, the canopy fittings on the dinghy allowed me to fit a cross brace stiffener for the mast so it sails extremely well.

I also increased the width of the trolley axle to make it easier to cart.

The jib is almost new.  Both sails were made by Sanders Sails in Lymington.

The daggerboard and rudder must have been re-made before I bought it as they are in very nice condition.

She's ready to sail.

The photos were taken on 30th March 2021.

Price £600 o.v.n.o.

Life Raft Kit
£50 o.n.o.
Near Salisbury, Wiltshire
(ad placed 16/10/2020)
Complete Tinker Tramp sailing kit, sail number 2140.

Very little used.  I have owned the Tinker for about 10 years, and still use it as a tender, but have no use for the sailing rig.  It had never been used when I bought the boat, and I used it for about 3 years to teach my kids to sail.  Since then its been stored in an attic.  It is all complete except 2 battens missing from the mail sail.

All in good condition except for a couple of rust stains on the sails - all the original folds can still be seen in the sails.

I also have a life raft canopy which has hardly come out of its bag, plus gas cylinders.  There is also a drogue with all lines.

Price for the complete sailing kit - £150 o.n.o.

Price for the life raft canopy, drogue, and CO2 cylinders - £50 o.n.o.
