Ganymede is the modern 8-Metre owned by Peter Wilson. She was designed by Juliane Hempel and built at the Aldeburgh Boatyard in 2007. Her hull is built with a selected Sitka spruce core, diagonal outer layers in mahogany and glassed on both sides.

Her keel, wings and trimtab is identical to Hollandia, Howlett design, lead foil and bulb, bronze wings and trim tab.
Spars are Z-Spar, similar section to Proctor but slightly stiffer. Spi pole is carbon. She never had the best of sails to keep up with the top end of the fleet but she has shown plenty of potential, especially with Avia sailing her at Cowes.

Peter Wilson would like to part with her, is desperately keen to keep on sailing his “If” which is the floating love of his life but needs the funds from Ganymede to make that possible.

The asking price is around GBP ,=, she now needs TLC but to my mind it’s a really fair price for a great and potentially winning modern 8-Metre.

She has no sails as these were lost in a fire at the yard (Ganymede was not affected as she was outside)
