Most SigneTs are well built and made to last. The association keeps a fairly comprehensive list of boats, boats histories and previous owners. Therefore, the condition of most second hand SigneTs is reasonably well known. Some are well maintained and ready to sail, whilst others made need cosmetic attention to the paintwork etc. Occasionally older boats may need a little more attention. However, they are easy to repair it is usually easy to see what attention is needed and carry it out. Sometimes older boats may need seams taped to prevent minor leaking, something easily done when re-decking.

Unfortunately, demand for secondhand signeTs has again far outstripped supply (by about 3:1), and there are no SigneTs available at present.

While demand usually outstrips supply, the following are up for sale.

Please contact the class secretary (details on the contacts page) for the latest situation regarding any other recently available secondhand SigneTs.

Alternatively you could consider building a boat from the plans available from the association, from a kit supplied by our builder, or buy a new boat from our builder.

Unfortunately nothing is being advertised at present.

Available FREE to anyone who wants to take on a serious restoration project. This is the hull of Signet Dinghy ST 43 (Slithy Tove). It was built in 1962 by Peter Monk who raced it successfully for many years. Indeed it was the National Champion in 1964 at the first race of the Signet Class at Burnham on Crouch, Essex.
I have owned the dinghy for the last 12 years. I tidied it up on acquisition and had a lot of fun with it, my girlfriend (now wife) even sailed it round the Norfolk broads, camping on board. However over the last 8 years or so the boat has been left unused at the back of the garden, upturned on its trailer without a cover. Consequently the elements have taken their toll, and she is now in need of major repair work.

She will certainly need re-decking, and possibly a lot of the outer hull replacing. She will also need fitting out as her various fittings were removed long ago. I don’t have the time or woodworking skills to repair her, and so regretfully must let her go. I am hoping that someone in the Signet Association would like to save her, given her early number and racing history. If no one comes forward by the end of March however, she will have to be cut up and lost forever as we no-longer have space to store her.
The pictures should give you an idea of the scale of the project.

We are based on the Essex /Suffolk Boarder between Colchester and Ipswich – about 1 hour from Junction 28 of the M25 if travelling from London, or about an hour from Cambridge if you are travelling from that direction.
You will need a suitable trailer for collection.

If you are interested in saving ST43 for future generations please email James on (further photos available on request).
