What's happened to all the Bull 7000's out there?

Would be interested in buying one.

Any one know of any sitting about for sale in the UK?
Don't mind a bit off work if the price is right.

There are a few about that pop up from time to time, the problem is the boat itself... there's a reason it was known as the BullS***!

Whats the problem with them?

The only problem that I'm aware of, can be avoided if you make sure the washboards and hatches are closed. If not and you broach, water can too easily enter inside due to the off centre hatchways.

Had good fun crewing on one for a few years and a good all round boat which can sleep 4

There are much better sports boats out there for the money. The fleet never took off which is why second hand boats are few and far between.

I dont agree that there are much better boats for the money!! I have also sailed a Bull for quite a few seasons, they are great fun and easy to handle both afloat and ashore and for a sport boat they offer more comfort than most.

The Bull 7000 is an outstanding boat, there is no safety problem with the twin companionways when laid down after broaching in high wind and big seas, trust me, done it a few times in 35 knot breezes whilst planing at 18 knts + (bear away before you have to, but when you race you push it). 

I've owned Rampage 7172 for over 10years, used for cruising and racing. Just got back from Falmouth Week (220mile road trail from Southampton) won the IRC Div 1 Royal Cornwall Regatta & St Mawes Regatta, and came 2nd in two of the Windward Leeward Mini Series, not bad for a difficult IRC rating of 0.963. I also cruise regularly along south coast and think nothing of going away for a week, but usually weekends.

Boat is a blast off wind, very stable, and OK upwind (go for speed not pointing, use smaller jib to punch waves). Its a very handy club / regatta racing boat, not an IRC killer by any means, but great fun. Trade off for the accommodation is that it gets cramped tacking with 4 due to coach roof, sails very well with three, but like any small boat likes rail weight, although has good form stability

Fractional kite is great in breeze and points high on a reach (a bit of a regatta weapon), mast head kite is very controllable easy to recover and launch. Due to the canting pole you can soak it downwind in light air and get under the big gusts in breeze making very stable

I regularly sail on my own with the kids using all sails, boat has fixed toilet, decent cooker & sink arrangement. Large cockpit and double purchase on jib sheets without need to winch makes life easy. Bunks are as good as on big boats, with a double under bridge deck and large V berth up front. Engine holds away into a locker and the convenience of twin companion ways is amazing.

Hull and rig are holding up well, I have just got a new trailer this August to make better use of its trailing capability. Only week point is the lifting keel block & tackle arrangement, it works well but makes me nervous, have been thinking of a demountable crane, not so convenient but more belt and braces.

I am considering selling my Bull, if I can find something better that is raced in Solent in numbers (J-80, J-70 maybe, but they have short comings), struggling with present boats on the market which are not as good as the The Bull 7000 for all round use and trailing, with the Bull fun factor.

Greg Young the Bull 7000 designer told me over the summer that he is in discussion with a French builder to look at fresh design, although he would not change much as the design was so forward thinking anyway. Maybe carbon mast and bowsprit.

Come and have a look and a sail, I dry sail in winter from Warsash Sailing Club, use Universal Marina on The Hamble in Summer for convenience.

If you can find a well cared for Bull 7000 snap it up, they are an outstanding trailable mini cruiser / racer for sailors with spirit.

I also have a Bull 7000 which I would be willing to part with as it has had very little use over the past 4 to 5 seasons due to circumstances and family commitments. 
She was built in 1998, sail no. 7178 and is dark blue. Is well equipped complete with trailer. She is located in the North of Scotland but because of her ease to tow I wouldn't be put off by this and would be willing to assist with any delivery.
I interested please be in contact for more details.

Hi HC, have seen one called Bullitt in Chatham marina, hasn't moved in the last year and looking a little unloved.
Don't know who owns or if they would sell, but may be worth trying to find out about.

Dear all,

This seems to be the market place for Bull 7000. Is there currently someone willing to sell?
I am a great enthusiast, but it turns out to be quite difficult to lay hands on one in decent condition. 

Please contact me if you have one or know one for sale. +31-614445510. Or leave me a message. 

Best regards,

R

That's an interesting small boat and http://bluebullitt.blogspot.se/p/bull-7000-info-test.html" rel="nofollow - boat test it seems to have a swivel pole with a bit more efficient system than the Alto and they speak quite highly of it..

Shame the dinghy market doesn't have the same attitude, either to the system or boat tests as detailed.
