 A white wooden Mirror dinghy being sailed on a lake by two children

1974

Wood hull built by Bell Woodworking Co. Ltd

1975 - 2010s

Tim Zilkha acquired the boat as ‘new secondhand’ in 1975 from a lady in Sidcup who won it in a raffle and she left it in her dining room. He sailed it extensively in Chichester harbour in 1970s and 80s.  Sailed less so in recent years & on reservoirs.

2022

This boat is now for sale for £700

I have reluctantly decided to sell my Mirror dinghy, complete, after some years of not using it. It has always been stored under cover in a well-ventilated carport.

It is complete and original with:-

  • Alloy Gunter main mast
  • Jack Holt sails very little use
  • Original Jeckell sails also present
  • Jack Holt spinnaker and chute/pole
  • Oars and rowlocks
  • Thick ply outboard bracket on transom
  • Jack Holt boom up cover
  • Satellite galvanised trailer and spare wheel
  • Galvanised launching trolley unused.

Currently in white yacht enamel and varnished interior, so pretty standard.

RYA measured in class years ago.

To use it, although completely sound, I would repaint the hull and revarnish the interior but there’s nothing wrong with it and it looks very presentable as it is.
