Tamarisk : Previously 'unknown' 4 Ton Hillyard For Sale
Tamarisk popped up on the internet in November 2016. As she was not on the list of 'known' boats built by David Hillyard I emailed the seller, Cheryl Jose, for more information. Cheryl wrote back, “I'm afraid that I don't know her history or whether or not she has ever been renamed. My dad bought Tamarisk in 2003 and did quite a lot of restoration work. A new mast was made her c2009. She certainly gave my dad a lot of pleasure sailing and cruising in and around Falmouth. Unfortunately my dad passed away last September and she was left to my brother and myself. Knowing that neither of us would have the time to take care of her properly, dad asked us to put her up for sale”.
If anyone knows anything of Tamarisk's history, please get in touch.
