Additional Comments

The owner comments:-

"The first impression you get when stepping aboard is a boat that has been well cared for throughout her life and comprehensively equipped.  She ticks a lot of boxes.  The sail wardrobe is in good condition and she is a delight to sail, eager to respond to a positive and light helm.  Sail handling is lead aft for the safety and convenience that brings or may be handled at the mast as you prefer.  All winches and running rigging are in good shape and with a stack pack, sail changes are easy and simple.

She was built with a moulded liner and has the luxury extended to moulded GRP bins below the saloon and fo'c's'le.  The head linings and brightwork are in superb condition belying her age.  The galley and navigation areas are well thought out and seating is very comfortable and in excellent condition.  

Our November delivery trip was from Grimsby to Harwich in 4-6 North to North Easterly finishing the last leg in rain and fog.  The engine was run throughout to maintain maximum speed which gave us confidence in the motor.  The compression is good making it an easy starter.

All in all, she is a boat we are most proud of'."
