One of the largest and most highly specified Ramparts ever built, Old Smuggler was originally built for Edward J. De Winter for the princely sum of £100,000 in 1979, and launched as Ed Carpetbagger. The gold plated fittings in the owner’s saloon demonstrate the high standard of fit out.

De Winter kept her near his Poole home at the Poole Harbour Yacht Club (now Salterns Marina) before selling her only a few years later to J Kaiander of Hvalstad in Norway.

She has remained in Norway ever since, and is now up for sale. Her current owner has kept as Old Smuggler since 1988, but her sale is being organized by Vidar Dahl-Nielsen, who can be contacted by email at vidar@dahlnielsen.no
