Tiptoe is a 1970s ‘Bermudan’ rigged sailing yacht
A lovely example, high on performance and enjoyment, whilst very cheap and easy to maintain. Popularly known as the ‘light wind flyer’ Achilles 24 is a responsive and exciting boat to race with good potential for short and overnight cruising. These boats have sailed across the Atlantic! A crew of three makes for a competitive racing experience but single handed sailing is equally possible with all control lines led back to the cockpit on this boat.
‘Tiptoe of Tara’ has been owned by me for 17 years and comes with a full suite of sails and all the accessories and inventory that you need to get straight on the water. She has been upgraded to slab reefing on the mainsail and all control lines are led to the cockpit. A well in the cockpit is designed for a long shaft outboard motor as auxiliary power and included in this sale is an old but servicable Marina 8HP 2 stroke. There is a plug that fits the well for sailing without the motor installed.
Tiptoe was launched for the season a few weeks ago and is moored in Portland Harbour, Weymouth. Storage legs (4) are not included in the price but can also be supplied for a reasonable price. Viewing by appointment please.
Advertised locally and elsewhere so I reserve the right to end this listing early.
