The range included the Samphire 23, Samphire 26 and Samphire 29. 
Samphires are noted for their seaworthiness, traditional looks and solid 'little ship' feel.  They feature shoal draft long keels, masthead Bermudan rigs, inboard engines, heavy lay-ups, 'She-dek' imitation teak decks, balsa cored decks, and a foam cored beam to support the mast.

This website is being developed by a small group of Samphire owners to share knowledge and promote interest in these craft.  We hope to formally set up a Samphire Owners' Association shortly, and would be pleased to hear from other Samphire owners, or anyone else who has knowledge of or interest in these boats.
