Owners Comments

This is a reluctant sale of a beautiful boat on which I have spent a great time and over £9,000 upgrading to its present standard. The new metal spars are a huge advantage in simplifying the foredeck work (not to mention winter storage and maintenance) and all the standing and running rigging is new, mainly utilising dynema. The mainsheet system is new Harken and many of the cleats and blocks are now Harken.

The hull is in excellent condition, having been hand-sanded back to gel coat in 2016-17, followed by Primacon and Ultra 300. Old antifouling is removed each year before renewing. The boat has not been repainted after a short season afloat so buyers can see for themselves the excellent state of the hull and keel.

In its current configuration, the boat is at minimum racing weight of 1930kg, but all the original cruising fittings are safely stored away to be transferred with the boat.

Currently ashore at home, the boat can be viewed at any time, or I can send detailed photos.

In addition, I have brand new, unused Sanders mainsail and jib which were built for the 2020 season but not used. They cost over £1900 and are available for £1550.
