    Default Itchenor Boat Yard (s)

    Hello All,
    I'm new to the forum but expect that I won't be a stranger going forward as I have just become the proud owner of a Folkboat that was built at a boat yard in Itchenor in 1964.

    I have some of the boats more recent history but wondered if anyone else has a Folkboat built at Itchenor, as I am trying to trace exactly where it was built and perhaps get some info on her.

    Kind Regards
    K.

    Do you mean Itchenor on Chichester Harbour? I`ve been there many times but don`t recall a yard that built FBs in the 60s.

    Greetings from dry and sunny Germany,

    Alan.

    Hi Alan,
    Yes, I think that it is in Chichester.

    When I go over to the boat next I will take a picture of the makers plate. There were several yards in Itchenor and some changed hands over the years.
    Dry and Sunny?..... lucky you!

    Hi Gareth,
    No I didn't actually.
    I had a feeling that the Shipyard may have been the one but it was taken over by Northshore who have sadly gone into liquidation recently I think.

    It would be worth a phone call.
