An ideal blue water cruising yacht, sails well in all conditions. Equipped to be self sufficient on long passages, in ready to go anywhere condition.
Batteries, anchor windlass, 75 metres of chain, mainsail, gennaker, liferaft, hydrovane and watermaker were all new in 2011 for a planned Atlantic Crossing and USA East Coast cruise.
The owners have practically brought up their two children (now 7 and 8 years) on board from just 6 weeks old. The growing children now need a short school attending break, followed by setting sail in, hopefully, a bigger boat.
Purchased new in 2004 by the current owners, she sailed with two adults and two infant children around the UK, Ireland, Norway, Northern Isles, France, Spain, Portugal, round the Mediterranean - a three year trip. With a maximum speed of 8 knots, she is a fast passage maker with a very good average speed capability, achieving an average of 6.5 knots on a 600 nautical mile passage from Spain to Ireland, good for a family home!
She can be easily sailed by a couple or single handed. All systems are upgraded to suit long term cruising and she is exceptionally well maintained and ready for ocean cruising.
She is fully equipped for hot climates - bimini, water maker, extra fans on the fridge cooler, cabin fans, as well as for cold climates with insulated hull and deck, two heating systems and a hot water system.
