About 1500 of these seaworthy boats have been built.Originally designed as a successful half ton racer, that has settled into being a fast cruising yacht.The way they sail, especially to windwards is well known. The fin keel has 1500kgs of lead encapsulated. no worries about keel bolts.

The topsides have previously been painted, and could do with a refresh. The deck is original, and has never been painted.The locker lids have now been replaced with new marine ply lids. I have epoxy coated them this time, followed by varnish so they should be good for a few years. The flag staff received a fresh coat of varnish at the same time, and the rear ladder has been re fitted.There is a spare fuel filter, water pump seal, and impellor. A set of coastal flares, only slightly out of date. There is an additional truck diesel filter mounted in the locker that can be connected if a bad batch of fuel is causing problems.There are several extinguishers plus a free floating co2 one.The bimini is especially useful in the sun, and can be used as the base for a cockpit tent in the future should you wish. Or a sheet put over it to protect the cockpit. The dinghy, outboard, wind vane, travel fridge, and any of the other odds and ends you may see are not included in the inventory, and are not part of the sale.The 2 105ah house batteries (replaced 2018) are charged by alternator, and 200w solar with mppt controller, via a 1-2-both manual switch. the engine has a seperate 75ah start battery. replaced 2017.led bulbs fitted on internal lights.Caframo fan in the forecabin, along with switched usb charger.Cabin heating is a 4kw planar diesel heater, trunked under the saloon berth, and with 3 outlets in the cabin..The clip on points for harnesses have good backing plates.There are some spare warps, and sufficient fenders for most occasions.I’m sure i have missed plenty of smaller items, so do come and see this much loved boat at Falmouth.
