Moonflower is a 1990 Gib’Sea 242 with lifting keel, I have owned her for the last 4 years she is kept on a swinging mooring at Fell Foot on the beautiful Windermere in the Lake District in the summer months and stored ashore through the winter.In the time I have owned her I have logged 1400 mile on the lake and had no problems with either boat or engine. She is an ideal starter boat I learnt to sail on her and regularly have week long holidays sometimes taking 3 grandkids on her. All lines are led back to the cockpit for ease of single hand sailing. She sails well both downwind and upwind and when there is no wind she has a 2008 Yamaha 9.9 high thrust outboard with remotes, the engine is rarely used but is still serviced annually. Having a lifting keel she can get on any jetty on the lake at all water levels.I have got one of the best moorings on the lake with uninterrupted views north up the lake and all amenities on shore inc parking, toilets, showers, licenced cafe ,club house, childrens play area and probably the nicest park in the Lake District The annual mooring fee is £940 and winter storage approx £240. She is a very well maintained boat as the pictures prove and no expense has been spared to keep her in this condition . I am reluctantly selling her as I have got a larger boat. She is an ideal size for a couple or a small family with a spacious aft double birth and 2 singles in the open plan roomy saloon and a cockpit that can accommodate 6 adults Her inventoryOn deckstanding rigging replaced 20062x headsails 1 x 130 Genoa plus 1 x Yankee Jib good condition1x Main sail with slab reefing with 2 reefing lines led to cockpit good condition1x Spinnaker with pole never usedBarton boom strut new 2017 (no need for topping lift)25lb CQR anchor with 10mtr chain and 30mtr rode6 Spinlock clutches 3 port & 3 starboard3 Winchers 2 with barton self tailing winchers 2x winch handles2008 yamaha 9.9hp high thrust 4 stoke outboard in port well with remotes15ltr plastimo fuel tank + 5lt portable canSpray hood2 x gas bottles5 fendersboom canopy4 mooring lines2x buckets and cleaning stuffFloating boat hookPushpit mounted BBQswim ladder1x 70amp Starter battery 2014 charged by engine and solar panel1x 110 amp leisure battery 2014 charged by engine and solar panel3 way isolator switchNavigationbulkhead compassNasa clipper duet depth and log 2015Nasa clipper wind speed and direction 2016portable battery nav lightsBelowOpen plan 4 birth 2 singles in saloonAft double birth with portlightupholstery in excellent conditiondrop leaf dining tablestorage lockers under all birthlifting chart table and seat50ltr flexible water tank filled from deckStainless steel sink with manual pumpPlastimo double burner gas hob and grillpots, pans and cutleryporta potti in aft cabinLED Lighting in saloon with remote control4 cushions for cockpitTrailer Nicholson purpose built twin axle trailer A frame and tackle for stepping mastPlease ring 07799808784 for details
