I’ve bought a new yacht and my wife says I only need one, so here is my great little Leisure 17 prepared and launched for the season. Sail away from Lower Halstow Yacht Club (Sittingbourne) now or tow away from 25 June when she is being lifted out.
These popular trailer sailors are great to learn to sail in or to move up from dinghies to yachts. A strong, safe and sea-kindly boat (at least one has crossed the atlantic). Search Leisure 17 on YouTube to see them in action.

If she goes for the buy it now price I will fit them in the price.
If keeping her my to-do list would be:
Paint the hull and topsidesMasthead light loose wire to fix when mast is downWindows – are clouded with age and one leaks a little in heavy rain so sealed with silicon from time to time
