Canna, a nice example of the sturdy Achilles 24 sailing yacht built by Butler mouldings in Swansea. Canna was used in the Bristol Channel and then at Pembroke Dock before we bought her 5 or so years ago, she had a good amount of work done before we took her to the Orwell, she is now on my drive under a tarp on a good roadworthy dk2000 galvanised road trailer (new 2006, 4 new tyres 2016) and can be towed away. Trailer available with the boat by separate negotiation.She’ll need a good clean and an antifoul but in theory she could go straight in the water, we bought a new depth sounder for her which is included and just needs fitting, she also could do with a new main sheet horse car as the shackle went but it will not hold you back if you can live with a bit of rope instead2015 We had the electrics updated and lights updated, some of the deck fittings reseated and made proper woodwork repairs where needed especially to the rear locker areas and cabin, lockers repainted, nuts off keelbolts and resealed, hull repainted (same colour – all Achilles 24 hulls were painted as Butler used clear gelcoat on the hulls to reduce osmosis problems, deck is still original gelcoat), new graphics, new radio, bildge pump system looked at and new hoses etc, new cabin sole ply etc.Before we had her the cockpit was modified to take a larger 4stroke engine and we had this work consolidated and tidied up a bit so all remains soundthe bedding/cushions, dodgers and companionway spray hood are original and show their age but still function and are ok, included is all the kit – running rigging, a good suit of sails, compass etc, auto helm, radio…etcBeing a boat there is always something to be done as she is getting on for being 40 years old soon and is still largely original.The one design flaw in the Achilles 24 is the stantions that are built into the deck and glassed in from underneath, they can drip slowly through the thin layer of glass covering the fittings underneath, we successfully remedied this with frame sealant around each stantion post and no doubt that will need periodic updating again but we only did it once and it has been watertight so far.There is a 2 stroke 4hp engine that came with the boat that you are welcome to but it is a bit smokey and hasn’t been started in a few years. We used a 5hp 4 stroke that was better on the lungs and ears in the cockpit but it is not included in the sale.I am happy to sell the trailer and the boat together if you want the outfit, or just the boat if you don’t need the trailer. Would prefer you came to collect the boat, please contact me if you have other ideas.Please see photos, they are sturdy, nice looking yachts and she was one of the last to be built, the correct sail number is on the mainsail. Any questions please ask.
