We have owned Sampler for over 10 years and she has been a wonderful little yacht and perfect for the Solent where we have cruised and club raced her. We have upgraded the boat during our ownership including a new fully battened main in 2017 and a bronze folding propeller in 2016. We have also had upgraded chainplates made (using the guide in the GK24 association website). She was anti fouled in April of this year and we have just fitted a new anode. She has 4 berths and although headroom is only 5ft 4inches due to her flush deck she is comfortable below decks thanks to her 9ft 3 inch width. The advantage the flush deck is that she is easy to move around on when sailing. She has the advantage of having a diesel inboard engine (Volvo Penta MD5A) which has been annually serviced. She is also what Westerly described as the curing version which has a shorter and wider keel (This does not seem to distract from her performance. We came 3rd in class and 97th over all in the 2010 Round the Island Race).She also has her own anodised cradle (Craft-e-cradle) http://tennamast.com/cradles/products/the-craft-e-cradle/We will be really sad to see her go as we have really enjoyed owning and sailing on her. She is a 1977 boat (41 years old) and does have the wear you would expect from a boat of this age. The boat comes with:Roller GenoaMainSpinnakerCompassVHFAnchor and chain (danforth)All warpsFendersGimbaled gas hobsea toiletInboard diesel engineSaildrive with folding propellerIts own cradle (for when she is out of the water)I will put pics of the interior on over the next few days. Please contact me if you have any questions and to arrange a viewing. The boat is in Fareham.
