Ecume De Mer 26ft Cruiser/racer Sailing Yacht. Condition is “Used”. Collection in person only.
Skellig is named after the wild islands off the west coast of Ireland where her previous owners would sail every summer from their base in Brittany. More recently Skellig was based in Pwllheli where she participated in ISORA races. I bought her in 2016 and have cruised more sedately around Anglesey and the Lleyn!
The Ecume de Mer (EdM) has great sea keeping abilities as “the Sailing Frenchman” shows in his YouTube channel – he took his across the Atlantic. PBO featured the Ecume in Dec 2019 as a pocket-rocket cruiser racer and I’ve included links below to YachtingMonthly and YBW articles online. There is a healthy Facebook community of staunch EdM owners and in fact another two EdM boats already here in Y Felinheli.
Popular with great performance and affordable. What have you got to lose?
