This is a lovely yacht. It is lying Windermere Lake and the successful buyer can either leave it on our mooring until they have arranged their own mooring or they can arrange locally to transport the boat to a new location and we have contacts who can arrange this cheaply. There is no trailer for the yacht.‘First Away’ is in good condition. The mainsail and Genoa have been replaced in the recent past and there is a good lazy jack system. The rigging is in good order and most of the ropes have been replaced this year. There are a few minor jobs to be done. The engine runs well and is sound but is not idling well. This is likely to be a blocked jet. Some of the trim in the cabin needs sticking back up. The galley is excellent with a spirit cooker and fridge that works well. The heads is either sea toilet or tank. electrics are all fine but does need a new cigarette lighter socket to power the television.A short video of her sailing https://youtu.be/L91sMuBbJGcShe is a tidy example of the popular First 24.
