I am the 3rd and current owner of “Zig Zag” and have owned her for 21 years.
During this time I have meticulously maintained her and cruised her extensively every summer, cruising the UK south and southwest coasts, including the Scilly Isles, and France, Normandy, Brittany, Loire Atlantique, Vendee.
Having cruised her mostly single handed I know every inch of her, and can say hand on heart she is a very proven, sound and easily handled sea boat.
It is a very reluctant sale for me and she will be very much missed, and it is purely because of the advancing years that persuades me to sell her now.
Always wintered ashore (Oct – April) every year since new.
Regular maintenance schedule annually with various updates.
2012 survey available by request.
