Now re-launched onto the water and re-marketed at a truly amazing price this yacht is Ready to Sail away in all respects, is an absolute bargain and perfect for a couple to explore the West Coast or anywhere the wind takes them.
The current owner has looked after her very well and sails her single handed on the West Coast of Scotland where he enjoys the beautiful scenery and many secluded anchorages of the area.
She is in excellent condition after the winter: clean, dry, and fresh.
After two seasons? rest with the mast down and the hull fully supported, she has now been re-launched:-
New rigging (all except the more recent forestay which was fitted with the roller reefing).
New VHF antenna, cable and connections.
New white LED lights at mast head and stern.
The low hours, nearly new Beta engine is fully serviced and tested and much general servicing and polishing has been done.
Designed by David Feltham, designer of Cobra/Seawolf class yachts, ?Sesenta? is a comfortable cruising yacht which sails very well with a surprising windward ability. She has a lovely, nearly new and economical diesel engine, a strong hull with epoxy below the waterline and a shiny gel coat above, good sails, and is in good condition. The interior is very comfortable with nicely varnished woodwork and good headroom.
The bilge keels with the rudder mounted on a strong skeg allow her to take the ground for inspection or a mid-season scrub, and avoid the expense and inconvenience of a storage cradle.
The individuality of her yellow hull is a very good feature: it is not lost among the masses of faded blue or off-white. Friends find the boat easily among the moorings or pontoons, and her visibility at sea is a safety bonus.
An economically priced mooring is available on Loch Creran in a highly recommended yard. If required, the present owner could assist the new owner in sailing the boat to a new home.
