Also suitable for general boating / rowing / fishing / motoring. Good for exploring creeks and bays For the enthusiastic sailer she is not ‘a boring family barge’ and provides an exciting sail for the single-hander and is a very competitve racer with two aboard.”Attractive, long keeled (with drop down plate), twin masted boat, with bowsprit and wine glass look stern. Pictures 10 and 11 are as I bought the boat back in 2019, in need of some simple tlc. I met the owners and they agreed to sell her to me. Hull, masts, sails etc. were all fine but the wooden bright work needed some work i.e. some sanding and revarnishing and the blue hull had faded and needed refurbishing and polishing. The sails look pretty much new and barely used. I intended sailing her this year, but have since bought another classic larger boat which I hope to fully restore over the next couple of years. So the Explorer II now needs a new home to raise funds for the new restoration project.I have an original brochure for the boat which I can e-mail to interested parties.Tel: 01832 273158 Mob: 07802 596725 firstname.lastname@example.org
