VIEWING BY PRIOR APPOINTMENT – OFFERS INVITED.
This is genuinely a
remarkable little boat..which has crossed the Atlantic ocean multiple
times – but now needs someone to give her some TLC…
Firstly, those who want a modern, sleek production sailing yacht probably won’t like “Serenity”
those who are looking for a proven ocean passage making boat which is
truly affordable, easy to manage and supremely comfortable for an
intrepid sailing couple (or solo sailer), looking to do some serious sea
miles in a boat with real character – read on….
The first owner, who built her we believe from 1997 to 2000, took her on two voyages from Lancashire to the Azores and back.
The second owner took her from Preston to the Caribbean and back.
All of this in a boat under 24 feet long!
and fourth owners have not found the time to carry on the voyages of
“Serenity” and she has started become a little neglected.
