Broker's Comments

This boat was completed and launched in 2009 and has been a source of great enjoyment for the owner since. The hull was purchased from Southern Ocean Shipyard in Poole. The interior has been carefully finished out by the present owner, who is a boat builder with many thoughtfully designed features. The finish is iroko hardwood and stripey sapele wood on many of the doors.

On deck, the spars and rigging are to a high standard with a good complement of cockpit instruments and navigation aids.
Her feel is of a newer boat that has been lovingly cared for.
She has a rolling winter storage cradle that is used to simply and effectively launch and recover her from a slipway. She is stored ashore for 7 months every year and due to Covid restrictions was not launched in 2020/21. This would make out of the water inspection simple and without cost. The cradle is available separately and the price is negotiable.

Work performed during the summer of 2015 includes re-varnishing, replaced keel plates with heavier versions, instrumentation serviced.The engine and seacocks have just been serviced ready for 2022 season.
