A great family boat.
‘Pyxi’ is a Hurley 24/70 GRP sloop. She is a good example of this popular and
safe cruiser and benefits from a good-sized interior. Full standing headroom,
useful living space and separate heads compartment make this model an excellent
family boat. Regarded as a modern high performance family yacht of a modern
design with cutaway bulbous keel, fine lines and modern skeg arrangement. She
has undergone many improvements and upgrades over the years. Lying Salterns Marina, Poole Harbour. Come and have a look!
I have sailed Pyxi for four years up and
down the south coast as far as Alderney and Plymouth. The previous owner sailed single handed to
Baltimore as part of the Jester challenge.
The Volvo Penta MD2010 10Hp inboard was
extensively rebuilt in 2015 and has done 75 hours since.
Pyxi is in average cosmetic condition
for a boat of this age.
4 berths in 2 Cabins
The Hurley 24/70 successfully introduced a more practical and comfortable
living space for owners to take their families out cruising for longer periods.
In her day, with her wide saloon, moulded furniture, nearly six foot headroom,
separate heads compartment and spacious working galley, she was considered
contemporary, even luxurious.
The owner has had the interior cushions upgraded to foam with the wood work
