Excellent condition ‘pocket rocket’ day sailer from Beneteau with four berths and lifting keel. Petit Moineau has everything a proper yacht has, just smaller. Ideally suited for a couple or small family but will accommodate four adults. Well maintained with 2012 mainsail, 2015 battoned Crusader headsail, 2018 Tohatsu 6hp 4stroke outboard, recently serviced and ready to go.
We bought her three years ago, upgrading from a Drascombe Dabber, as a small yacht we could use to attain our Day Skipper qualifications and have sailed her extensively along the South Coast, mainly Lyme Bay and Torbay but have taken her as far as the River Dart and Salcombe, staying aboard for up to ten days at a time. She has been magnificent and has proved herself in all kinds of sea conditions. We have learned a lot and earned our tickets in complete safety but it is now time to move on to a bigger boat.
Sailing in Lyme Bay and further South West, we regularly encounter dolphins. Here are some Common dolphins who came to play off Berry Head in August 2018
She has just been cleaned and treated to five coats of high copper content self-eroding antifoul. All lines except outhall and reef lines have been washed. New main halyard. Hatch has been revarnished. Teak toe rails and cockpit seats scrubbed. She was craned into the water at Exeter Docks on 21st March, a few days before lockdown and is ready to be taken up the canal to her mooring (not included in sale) on theRiver Exe on Thursday 21st May.
