UPDATE – Monday 31st. Lots of interest so far, lots of questions answered. The listing will be ended early if any bids are made which are below my expected price so if you are really keen, either bid now or message me with your best offer. The starting price has been amended because I am still receiving very pointless offers. To make it simple for people who are expecting £15000 of kit for just a silly low price, I expect to sell for about £10- £11000 so unless you are ready to pay at this level please don’t message with questions.
I expect the eventual buyer to either have already sailed one of these, or perhaps be a dinghy or catamaran sailor moving on, or a bigger yacht owner trading down, or an older person wanting to still sail but with more comfort and less moving about. Or perhaps a newcomer to sailing who really appreciates what this boat has to offer. Whoever buys will certainly have looked at all the You Tube video’s and will probably have some experience of sailing.
