Trailer sailor Ridgeway Pirate. 17 ft swing keel yacht.For the astute Ebayers you might notice this has been relisted after being sold last week. The buyer did not know that Whitley bay is near Newcastle upon Tyne and therefore not on the south coast.I let them break the contract as they had not bargained for a 700 plus mile round trip to collect. Therefore please bear in mind the location of the yacht before bidding. On with the item for sale.This is easy to tow with a standard car and launch if you do not want to moor it in one place..Easy to sail as was my first yacht and found it great to learn on.This yacht comes with a roadworthy braked trailer with two large ratchet straps to tie down when being towed.Trailer board with fully working lights ( you just need your reg plate.) An 4 hp mariner outboard engine with forward and reverse gears, Just done a bit of a service on it including a new impeller and gear oil..5 fenders and a fair few ropes and lines for docking etc,. Also a rope ladder which attaches to boat if needed.In the self draining cockpit we have a depth gauge and a speed logger plus speakers connected to the VHF radio which is just inside the cabin. At the back of the cockpit the winch handle for the swing keel which can be raised if required to explore shallower waterways.One of the cockpit seats lifts to access storage of the fenders lines etc and also houses a newly fitted bilge pump.This is a very dry boat so this has never been needed. Also inside the locker is a gas bottle which supplies fuel to the hob and grill inside the cabin.All running rigging was replaced last year and runs to the cockpit . It also has a mast lowering and raising system which can be done single handed if needed.On the cabin top there is a small solar panel which keeps the battery permanently topped up. Also at the bow we have a small anchor on chain and rope.Inside the cabin is very clean and tidy with Hob, and Grill , Sink VHF radio , Fire extinguisher and the Solar charge controller which has 2 usb outlets for phone charging etc , This charges a leisure battery which supplies the power for Cabin lights Nav lights (port, starboard and aft. ) Vhf radio and the Cockpit instruments,I will include a toolbox with a few spares inside and the spanners for mast lowering and raising.Front of the cabin can be made into a double bed and the port rear is a single .Ready to sail ( not a project ) with a mainsail ( complete with vang ) which has a cover for when stored on boom and jib on a rolling furler. Fitted a topping lift last year which makes raising .lowering and storing the main sail much better. Last few bits are a horseshoe man overboard float on quick release bracket, wind vane on top of mast and hitch lock and padlock for outboard motor.I have a folder which comes with boat which has loads of its history and receipts etc. inside.Any questions just ask. I have two walk around videos ( inside and out ) which I can wattsapp to you if it will help.
