David Binks B25 for sale. The B25 was originally manufactured in Australia as a trailer sailer. I purchased this one of 3 made in the UK by a boat builder based in Plymouth. The boat was built in 2006 and features modernisation’s of a lifting keel (via a coffee grinder style winch behind the mast on the cockpit roof) and twin rudder making it very manoeuvrable. The boat comes with a Tohatsu 6.5hp outboard as its engine. This has no problem powering the vessel against the wind and tide. The motor also has 12v output for onboard electronics and battery charging. The main is in good condition and she comes with 2 jibs, one of which is a storm jib. She comes wit a full compliment of lines and fenders. I have had her lifted out and cradled on the hard in Plymouth for the winter, unfortunately due to work and family commitments I have not had the time to carry out the work that I wanted to get done. Although she is ready to sail there are some projects that would be nice to get finished. These are:1. I removed the headlining earlier in the year as it was getting a bit mouldy as you’ll see in the pictures. I have kept other plywood sections for a template for its replacement but not got round to it yet. 2. The electronic need finishing. I had a battery installed in the cockpit locker which charges from the outboard but the internal electronics only currently consist of a voltage readout and switch panel. The wiring isn’t complete. 3. When I prepped her for being lifted out I noticed the eye bolt that is welded to the top of the keel had broken. Therefore the keel cannot be lifted until fixed. In her current position the keel is in the up position enabling easy fixing of this. I think it will require re-welding of the stainless bolt to the keel top. The current rate for her storage is £130 per month. She is very easy to sail, but I am in need of a larger boat. I have learnt a lot on her and sail single handed around Plymouth sound. She will l make a great first boat for someone as she did for me. Many thanks.07851004099
