DescriptionThis is a mini-tonner with a racing pedigree, twice winner of the President’s Cup at Rye Harbour Sailing Club for best performing boat for the season including last year, 2017. Fantastic cruiser racer, easy to handle and fantastic fun. Limbo Girl was formerly owned by bronze medal winner Jasper Blackwall.The Limbo 6.6 was designed in around 1975 by Andrew Stewart as a small fast coastal cruiser with potential for competitive racing as a one design ‘mini-tonner’. Most people now use them as club racers, in which role they are generally rated as faster than GK24s or Sonatas (both two foot longer) and neither slow boats themselves. A Limbo 6.6 was raced transatlantic in 1979, and completed the course. Limbo Girl is fully equipped, ready to race and has competed at Ramsgate Week Regatta, Eastbourne Regatta and Dover Regatta and raced across the English Channel.MotorTohatsu Four Stroke 5HP Long Shaft outboard with 10lt fuel tank. Purchased new in July 2015.Mounts on lifting bracket.Construction
Zygal Boats built about 130 Limbo 6.6s between 1975 and the mid 80s. The hulls and decks are balsa sandwich GRP, and the drop keel is an aerofoil section iron casting, raised and lowered by a wire on a braked winch.The heavy iron centreboard was designed to be raised as necessary when reaching or running to improve performance, although overall wetted area would not decrease much, frontal area and hence resistance would be reduced, as well as altering the balance and trim.Rudder lifts our of the casing and can be sailed with the rudder only part in the water.
