Scheherazade is a good example of a Seal Sinbad which is a
Seal with a roomier interior. She is completely watertight and dry in the cabin
and has a self draining cockpit. She has a fin keel (4ft) for performance and
good stability which retracts to 2 ft allowing you to explore the shallows, run
up on the beach, use a mudbirth or trail her behind a car.
She comes with a smooth, reliable 4 stroke yamaha outboard
which has just had a major service including gear box oil and impeller change
and carburetor strip down and clean out. The outboard idles well, selects gears
easily and passes a strong jet of cooling water. The engine sits in a hidden
well out of the way. The engine has more than enough power to push Scheherazade
at her maximum hull speed even against a tide and headwind.
She has literally just had the bottom scraped, powerhosed
and antifouled, so she slips nicely through the water.
Scheherazade is currently sitting on a beautiful Chichester
Harbour mooring in Bosham which will be available when the boat is sold. With
Scheherazade only drawing 2 ft with the keel retracted, she can move off this
mooring at most states of tide except 1-2hours around low springs. The mooring
can be taken on by the new owner if they wish for only £250/ year!
Please see the photos of the actual view from the mooring.
The stable but easily drive hull has a 40% ballast ratio
making her very safe.
The interior is in very good condition. She has a large bed
forward with a sink and tap, a table, a place to hang cloths and a separate
This section can be sealed off by a curtain from the main
cabin which has a central table with collapsable leaves that also forms the
housing for the retractable keel. There is also ample seating and sleeping room
with soft cushions, a 2 ring gas cooker and many lockers for cooking utensils
and storage of sails, life jackets, sheets and food.
The hull construction is fibreglass with progressive
thickening from the waterline to the keel and at the bow. This along with
bonded in fore and aft stringers and interior moulding give her great rigidity.
The retractable keel is 370kg of hydrodynamically shaped
iron casing which fits snugly into its glassfibre housing and works perfectly.
She has a Bermudan sloop rig with mast and boom by Ian
Proctor and stainless steel rigging all of which are in very good condition and
She has a very crisp and fresh mainsail, jib and spinnaker
and a perfectly usable cruising genoa.
She comes with an inbuilt compass, VHF radio, depth guage,
heavy duty 12volt battery, all internal and external lights, life jackets,
harnesses, anchor chain and rope, fenders and life ring.
