Ronautica 265——————–Great performance and style in a smaller package. Fully equipped and ready to sail. For sale at a fraction of the replacement cost. I’ve lowered the price but won’t take offers – I’ve now sorted out mooring for this year and a boat will probably keep me sane (in self-isolation!) this summer.Practical Boat Owner magazine said “Quick, roomy and economical, this cheeky little newcomer from Spain has potential as a spirited family cruiser….Above all she’s the best example I’ve seen of how to squeeze a quart into a pint pot”. Reading between the lines, this means the accommodation is bigger than you’d expect in a 7.5m boat, but still cozy – fine for a couple for a week, or a young family for the weekend.I’ve had the boat for 2 years, but am thinking of selling now since I have lost access to a residential mooring in Lymington. Since I’ve had the boat, I’ve sailed throughout the winter in the Solent, and cruised from the Solent to the West Country twice. The boat is more lively in a seaway than a heavy cruiser, but sails better.The boat is fine to sail single handed (including the spinnaker), and has enough interest for a crew of 4. The boat sails well with just the jib or main, and will sail comfortably at 6 knots.The boat is currently in the water at Lymington, and I have booked a scrubbing grid berth on 23 May for washing-off, not knowing what the boatyard/crane situation is with the pent-up demand from lockdown. If there is serious buyer interest, I will haul out instead. Please contact me if you have any questions.Specifications——————–RCD Cat B.SSR registered.Length Overall 7.48m.Waterline Length 7.18m.Beam 2.98m.Draft 1.65m.Displacement 2250kg.Ballast 858kg.Crew Max. 6.Mainsail 18.8m².Genoa 17m².Boatyard Ronautica.Interior Designer Barracuda.Construction——————–GRP Hull, deck and superstructure.
