NIRVANA is a very well laid out comfortable family boat with lots of space for her size. She is very well equipped for sailing and for family holidays. Set up with all lines back to the cockpit so easy to manage single handed if necessary. Comes complete with hot and cold water, 2 showers, full cooker, leather seating, shore power, autohelm, chart plotter, cd player. See below for full spec.
Nirvana was constructed by Mathew Thwait in 1997/8 who at the time was one of the owners at Barnes Brickcraft in Wroxham. It is understood that Mathew tutored at the Lowestoft Marine College and built 3 boats, this one was built for himself. Using the hull from an Arrenson 780, the hull was professionally extended to 28ft. This added the scoop rear and boarding platform. Fully kitted out by Barnes Brinkcraft she has a very comfortable and more homely feel than the traditional small yacht and makes her a much more sociable boat to be aboard for her size. Mathew sailed her to the Med and she was used in France until returned to the UK. She was sold then sold to a broker 11 years later.
The last owner had her delivered to Stanraar in Scotland and she was sailed there for a couple of years until she came into our ownership as a part exchange for a bigger yacht. We sailed her back to Fleetwood and has been used by us personally for the last season and is still in use regularly recently spending time in Morecambe Bay and trips to Peil Island in Barrow in Furness.
We can assist with delivery options including delivery by sea if required.
