Absolute Bargain – Must go – Used- currently on the River Hamble. This 1970 Quarter Tonner Mystere Flyer with wheel helm is an amazing yacht. Normally used for our family holidays and weekends away I’m reluctantly having to sell her due to other family commitments etc. Sails really well. The design won a few classes before the modern day Quarter Tonner design took off. She’s beamy with a good 1.4m keel and she’s as happy sailing flat on a beam reach or healed over close hauled. Sleeps 5. 2 quarter births, main cabin single and twin V berth. Sea toilet which works, may be worth popping new seals in as the pump is a bit squishy. (Cheap job)Afloat currently – buyer will be posted the keys as I am not currently local to the yacht. Buyer will need to find own mooring after purchase though she can remain put for a short period after purchase. Instruction will be given how to get to her and number for local water taxi or closed marina to put a tender in if required.She will need a clean (breaks my heart that I can’t get to her so often at the moment) and the battery is flat so she will ideally need someone to get her across to one of the many marinas and charge or get some other power source to her to get her going and get the engine running up. Inboard engine is a Yanmar GM1 which is a bulletproof diesel. Engine is great and have needed to motor for many hours in light airs and never skipped a beat. Has hand start handle too. Loads of info about the engines on YouTube.Will need a topside clean (birds and seaweed) and underneath scrub. This shouldn’t be too onerous as she was copper coated and it’s still active. As the photos show previously I’ve used one of the local day drying births and their power wash. Generally dry boat but the windows and rear access hatch could do with reselling or replacing (windows). There’s sometimes freshwater in the bilge after a bout of heavy rain. Sails and items onboard are not new but adequate to get you going. Sheets, warps, anchor, fenders, GPS, has cooker, pots/pans/cutlery and tools/grease/cleaner, shore power cable and I could go on! Dinghy in the photo included and is onboard. Outboard not included. Spray hood went on in 2013 and is in great nick (again needs a clean). Provides adequate protection if up at sea and lovely to sit under with a drink in the marina. Ongoing maintenance for new owner – clean her, grease the stern gland every now and then, check the oil and water flow, keep the battery topped up, check the seacocks – and enjoy!! Sounds mad but I’m putting her on at a £1 start. She has to go ASAP and I want the right person to take her over and use their good money to get her up to scratch. We got her for a great price and she’s paid us back a hundred fold with great memories. She’s a beauty, We’ll miss her. Happy bidding.
