Broker's Comments

The sale price includes a mooring until April 2021 and boat insurance until June 2021. If you are looking to get on the water this summer then this could be the package that you're looking for.

The owner who is a qualified and confident skipper will also provide hands-on sailing tuition FOC to the buyer, should they wish to take it.

Set up for family & short-handed cruising, this popular cruiser /racer was designed by Julian Everitt and built in Christchurch Dorset in 1980, Recently refurbished it is lying in Lymington.

Used to sail and motor exclusively in the Solent mostly single-handedly, but also with the family and grandkids. Its sea-kindly design and lifting keel have allowed its current owners to use it for creek-crawling and as a beach boat. Great fun for all the family. They are all sad to see her go but relocation forces sale.

Comes with robust storage cradle
