TIGERLILY OF CORNWALL is a handsome motorsailer in all the best traditions, designed by Laurent Giles and originally built on the East Coast of the UK in 1989. Of robust steel construction, she is a capable bluewater mile muncher. With her protected high freeboard, huge amounts of deck space, lovely adjacent saloon and spacious accommodation below she is perfect for family cruising. In her current ownership, she has sailed literally hundreds of thousands of sea miles in both warm and cold waters. Skipper maintained throughout an ownership that spans more than 20 years, she has been massively updated and reworked through the period to ensure that she remains in great go anywhere condition. Works have included the normal painting and cosmetics as well as replacement of machinery and systems with many improvements that have been actioned because of experiencing TIGERLILY over many miles of ocean passaging as well as understanding what works best for local cruising. The maintenance programme continues with the total review of all water, black and grey tanks that have been checked, sandblasted and painted with epoxy paint for the 2023 season. The varnish work has also been refreshed and sundry other works carried out to keep TIGERLILY tiptop.
TIGERLILY OF CORNWALL has been a well-known sight for many years in the Mediterranean and much further afield – perfect for Caribbean sailing. She always attracts attention with her distinctive good looks, split rig and usability. She is currently laid up awaiting her new owner as her vendor has now purchased a larger yacht. She offers entry into comfortable, safe and fun superyacht ownership at a very attractive price.

TIGERLILY OF CORNWALL has proved herself to be a superb and safe yacht for both family and friends. In our ownership, she has sailed around 250,000 sea miles, maintaining dependable passage times at a solid 8.5 knots. She is not the fastest, but she is comfortable and reliable with her easy split rig and twin engines. She has taken us throughout the Mediterranean and to the Pacific, up to the Arctic Circle and to many points in between. We have spent a lot of time aboard her and are sure that her new owners will love her sociable spaces and safe high bulwarks that make her so safe for families. She has a large covered aft deck and lots of deck space with a sunken area of the mizzen mast which is great for sunbathing and spending time at sea or at anchor.
During our ownership, we have maintained her meticulously with regular service periods.
In 2007, we refitted her in Palma with new Perkins Sabre main engines, new hull paint, new paint on the booms and a full rig check with the rigs of the ground. The teak decks were replaced also.
In 2017, she came to the UK for a full rebuild of the chain locker area, new paint, with the rigs out again for corrosion control and a top end rebuild of the main engines.
In 2019, back in the Mediterranean, we replaced all the hydraulics and furlers and painted the booms.
TIGERLILY OF CORNWALL is a very special yacht and we have had tremendous fun with her down the years. We hope that her purchasers will have as much pleasure from owning her as we have.
