In the late 1990's this yacht was vandalised whilst on a swing mooring and sunk as a result of a transducer being removed. The boat was recovered immediately and moved to the original builder's yard. The boat was completely dried out and it was the subject of a complete refit.
The hull was epoxy treated and painted blue. The boat remained in the builder's yard until 2005 when the refit was completed. The works included the engine being re-built, a new gearbox fitted, new propeller, new sea cocks fitted, two new batteries, new galley fitted, new toilet and wash basin, new upholstery and interior completely re-lined, calorifier fitted, new in-mast reefing Seldon Mast and boom, new running and standing rigging, new headsail roller reefing system, new cockpit dodger and full awning, Raytheon wind, speed and depth instruments, new VHF Radio and autohelm.
This yacht has been owned by the current owner for the last six years.
Moorings available by separate negotiation - March 2017.
