To those that have followed us in search of their dream, of owning their ultimate Bristol Channel Cutter you will be thrilled to know that this is an amazing BCC because of her people. In about 2003 there was a knock at the door and the cutest couple in the world were outside the door. Several hours later they had made an offer on the BCC Itchen. Now after some years of sailing their socks off, they will have to turn over the helm. It’s an amazing story! More to come…

Anyhow…you have likely been following the Sam L. Morse Bristol Channel Cutter for some time and we want to tell you it will never get better. The BCC is a boat we love. Having owned two of them we have in-depth knowledge for these little sailing masterpieces. We truly appreciate every aspect of their character and strengths; if it is in the beautiful Lyle Hess classic design or perhaps the Sam L. Morse construction. This is one boat that actually is everything that you have heard about and dreamed about from the sailing characteristics, simplicity, and sheer beauty. No wonder these BCCs have enjoyed extreme loyalty in their following. These boats go where all of the big boats go, as safely, as comfortably and with the same pride or even more than yachts costing several times as much; and you can sail this boat by yourself.

In fact a few years ago Itchen’s owner who was an octogenarian together with his wife sailer her home from the Bahamas to Maine! He also made two  single-handed passages from Maine to the Bahamas.. He reports that the new AIS and SSB worked perfectly. Oh and the MARPA and the Cape Horn steering. And while he might seem a bit eccentric, very brave or… well he’s actually amazing. Itchen has made several passages from Maine to the Bahamas and has sailed straight from the Bahamas to Montauk in an offshore passage. I will tell you many people buy a BCC and not many go on to sail like mad. I like to think this is a boat that will actually sail you. She will take good care of you. In fact she will. Itchen is one of those BCCs that has been truly proven and sailed. She is not a prima donna, although she has been maintained with an attention to the demands of the sea. She is well found and you could sail away tomorrow if you want.

We have known Itchen for a long time. Her current owners showed up at our door in 2003 interested in finding the right boat. They were on the verge of retirement having waited for many years. They came aboard my Aloha and pretty much fell in love. Itchen was owned at the time by a special lover of BCCs who had lovingly restored the 1985 Sam L. Morse built Bristol Channel Cutter. She was a showpiece and irresistible. Her current owners have loved her well but also sailed her. She has become a real working BCC with many passages beneath her keel.

The time has come for Itchen to find a new owner who will love her and sail her. She is quite a boat. Several years ago she got the winter spa treatment in Maine to refinish all the exterior wood and it is still beautiful. More importantly she has just about all of the equipment you could need for real cruising. Itchen is equipped with all the goodies from radar and AIS to the SSB and Cape Horn steering system. After some seasonal passages to the Bahamas she was treated to a new full batten mainsail with three reefs. The full battens make a huge difference with and full mainsail taking her to about 12 knots of windspeed with the second reef at about 15 or 16 knots. It’s nice to have that third reef as an insurance policy. The boat is way faster than she looks and very sea kindly. The sail inventory includes a 100% roller reefing headsail with a foam luff so you can really roll it up and maintain good sail trim. There is also a high cut smaller headsail great for upwind work as well as three staysails including one with reef points for serious offshore work. She heaves to like a dream for a quiet ride in a storm.The new dodger and bimini have zip on rain shields that keeps the cockpit dry! This BCC is real. She’s ready, are you?

So to those that have always waited and dreamed about getting a new BCC, my suggestion to you is to save yourself enough money to cruise for a few years and just buy Itchen. She will soon be sold at her very realistic asking price. You will be getting the better part of a bargain in this case. Itchen will satisfy your hunger to own and sail a really great boat. Life is way too short for just dreaming it away.
