Sigma 8m One Design racing yacht. Built in 1995. GRP hull with Kevlar reinforcement and 450kg lead bulb. 2 sets of sails (1 Cruising set, one laminate racing set) and two spinnakers. Good overall condition, needs a bit of minor cosmetic work to finish a deck repair and would benefit from a good clean. Mast and rigging all in good condition. Sails have a reasonable amount of life left (one of the spinnakers is starting to look a little old). The interior is functional, she does have a full set of cushions (but don’t expect a cruising boat!) and a coolbox. She will sleep 6 at a push. She has an outboard bracket to take a small outboard (we use a 2.5hp just to get in and out of the marina, but this is not included in the sale as I also use it on another boat). She is a proper ‘wipe clean’ boat that requires very little annual maintenance and is great fun to sail. She weighs under 1.5 tons and the larger kite is 80m/sq so she planes readily and speeds in the high teens are quite possible. She will also cruise quite happily if you just want to the the family out, and the lift keel means if you want to trail her it’s quite possible with a modest 4×4 or small van etc. She draws 2m with the keel down and is a genuinely fast boat for her size that can easily be sailed by 2 or raced by 5-6 people. Included in the sale:Garmin Depth Sounder.Raymarine/Tactic Wireless Wind System.Largely Dyneema/Spectra running rigging (all replaced in the last few years).Harken fittings with windward sheeting car.Antal size 30 winches (new 3 years ago)Spinnaker Pole.Fenders.Mooring Lines.Lopo LED Masthead Tricolour Light. Full set of fitted cushions for the interior (white wipe-clean fabric)Lifting outboard bracket.Just to be clear this is a well used race boat, and while she has plenty of life left, and will be great fun for somebody, please don’t expect a new boat (she’s a 26ft yacht with a starting price of £1500!). The trailer in the photos is not included (I borrowed it off a friend). Viewing is welcome by prior arrangement, she is currently located at a boatyard in Poole, Dorset. She is in a private yacht club, so the new owner will not be able to take over the berth, but she could be sailed away or lifted on to your transport (the club has a travel hoist). There is also a public marina 300m away that you could move her to in the short term. The photos are of the actual boat, and all taken in the last couple of years, some only a couple of months ago. Selling due to time constraints (2 of us own the boat and we both have young families so just not getting the use out of her we should) so priced accordingly and for a quick sale. If you’re interested feel free to give me a call to discuss. If you win you will need to contact me within 24hrs. You will need to remove the boat within a reasonable amount of time but happy to discuss this over the telephone. I’m open to reasonable offers at any point. You can contact either myself on 07870 553 093 or my co-owner Chris on 07912 283 566 – one of us is normally available for viewings. I’ve got loads of paperwork for her with IRC certificates and bills etc. going back to when she was built.
