An ex-London Boat Show model with a DoT stability category 1 Hull, she has teak decks, carries a powerful conventional rig and large self tailing winches. She has good windward performance, exemplary seagoing qualities and the 10 berths are arranged so that 7 can sleep in comfort without using the saloon.
Equipment includes roller furling, new mainsail and 140% genoa, GPS, Raymarine wind/depth/log, stereo, brand new 3 burner Plastimo cooker, refrigerated cool box, pressurised hot & cold water system, inflatable tender, electric/manual anchor windlass and a propeller stripper. She has recently had a StakPak system fitted to make raising and lowering the mainsail a breeze.
She was recently fitted with new decks and a new powerful Volvo diesel engine and gearbox.
Last year she was completely re-upholstered and all the lighting was replaced with something brighter, more modern and energy efficient.
‘A tough boat and a joy to sail – they don’t make them like this any more’ – sadly!
