Amélie is a safe & fun small sailing yacht, ideal for adventurers, families and first time sailors alike. Pop her on her trailer and take her wherever you wish (the trailer is also a great money saver when it comes to boat storage, even keep her on your drive if you like!).
As a Swift 18 she is said to be unsinkable thanks to her extensive foam linings. Plus with the lifting keel she’ll easily explore skinny waters, requiring less than a foot to float in!
I’ve enjoyed owning her over the last 5 years and taken great care to ensure she is in tip top condition.
In 2015 she benefited from a brand new stack pack & lazy jack setup (making raising and lowering the sail as easy as pie).
In 2016 a complete refit of the cabin was undertaken, with re-furbished cushions, new shelving installed and refreshed headlining. She also benefited from a new anchor and chain.
All cushions and perishables etc have been stored at home during the winter months.
Her equipment is extensive for a small yacht:
Swift 18 – constructed in 1982, with a range of documentation
Professionally anti-fouled (including keel) in Summer 2018
Furling genoa & stack-packed mainsail (both washed & repaired in 2019 and unused since)
