This is a well found 31ft steel sailing yacht that inspires confidence. Built in a dutch shipyard and fitted out by her 1st owner. We are the 3rd owner, we have had her for 20 years, we have sailed her around Scotland and Ireland, to the Faroes and to Norway, she has always looked after us, we are reluctantly selling her as we have bought a larger boat to live aboard.Many steel yachts rust from the inside outwards but you will find Eos is clean, dry and rust free inside, in good condition despite her age, survey 2017 available.She draws 1.4m, has a fixed steel fin keel and a skeg hung rudder protected by a strut.There are 4 zinc anodes on the hull.We replaced the original Bukh 20 engine last year with a low hours Bukh 24 At a cost of £4000, there is a 55ltr fuel tank in the engine compartment.Aluminium mast, Aluminium spinnaker pole. The standing rigging was replaced in 2009. There is a mast lowering system.She has a roller reef genoa with a sacrifical strip and new canvas over cover. 2 speed sheet winches. The main is battened with slab reefing, lazy jacks and sailtainerThe main and genoa date from 2000 and are in good condition, there is also a cruising chute.There is a 15kg CQR anchor with 40m 8mm chain and a 10kg Danforth kedge anchor.The chain is stored in a isolated galvanised steel anchor locker so no water from the chain can ingress into the bilges,( this is very important, you will find many steel yachts have anchor chains that can drain into the bilge and this causes serious interior rust).The engine access cover in the cockpit is also galvanised.The steering is with a tiller, she also has autohelm which works from its compass or from a small wind vane.Equipment includes; Fluxgate compass, furuno radar, navtex and gps, there is a repeater for the gps in the cockpit, the radar is mounted in the cockpit, depth sounder display in the cockpit, gmdss vhf radio, EPIRB, Dan Bouy, new fire extinguishers 2018, 2kg dry powder, 1kg dry powder and an automatic extinguisher in the engine compartment.
