This English shipyard build is ideal for beginners and of course also for the experienced sailor. Even if you don't have a licence yet, you can still sail the boat due to the compulsory licence limit of 15 hp. Even if the season is almost over, she is ready to sail and ready to go straight away.
The ship is from 1971, but many things are much younger! The owner and his predecessors have invested a lot in recent years. The standing rigging was renewed in 2015 and the running rigging two years ago. The furling system including the headsail is from 2008. The age and hours of the engine are unknown, but the diesel runs really well! To keep it that way, the tank has been cleaned (by a specialist company) and fitted with an inspection hatch. The forward berths got new mattresses in 2015 and the toilet got a new pump. The sprayhood and cake shack are from 2007. The sail wardrobe is not new, as you can see in the pictures, but it is well maintained and usable.
Great for 2!
She is easy to sail. Few frills. Genoa and main can be operated from the cockpit. An autopilot assists the skipper and the very pleasant reefing system of the mainsail make the boat very single-handed. Inside it is cosy and practical. Ideal for two or even with a child. The saloon table can be lowered and converted into a double berth. The galley has running water and the toilet has its own room. Cooler box for the cold drinks
is available and also a small cooker with oven for the port are on board.
Some things could certainly be refurbished, but the boat with its 47 years is solidly built and not a musty shack but ready for immediate use! The current owner has not allowed any repairs to accumulate and has always looked after his boat. The known defects are, as usual, the windows (sometimes a little leaky) and a slight leak in the inspection hatch of the engine compartment when there is a lot of water in the cockpit. Good to master on one's own! All in all, in good shape! Due to the desire for a larger boat, the boat is being sold.
