YACHT “SOUTHERN COMFORT”
A two week, owners share, has become available.
“Southern Comfort” is a well proven sailing yacht – a Sigma
33C; hence the Cruising version, with shallower keel and full (not fractional)
rig and is a very enjoyable sailing yacht. Built in 1985.
Location base is Nidri, Levkas, Ionian Islands. A superb cruising
area. Local airport is Preveza. You can even hop-on-off at a pre-arranged
destination with the other syndicate members.
The boat is well fitted out and has been professionally maintained
by Ionian Boat Assistance, who are contracted annually. There is a lot of new
equipment on board and the vessel is continually upgraded. Approximately 30,000
Euros has been spent on her in the last three years.

The boat is always dry
stored for the winter and antifouled so the hull condition is good.
The boat is usually
constantly in use throughout the season, from May to early October. This is
good as maintenance is continuous and the boat is kept “sea-going”.
The syndicate is very
active and friendly; most members have two-week shares and three members have
four-week shares, with everyone, almost always, getting first choice for their
There are five adult berths
and one small pipe. But 2, 3, or 4 persons is more sensible.
The “heads” have a
black-water tank, so no worry about use in harbour.
There is no hot running
water, but a fresh-water shower on the back of the boat. The local
tavernas often have great facilities.
We meet for AGM in November
to sort maintenance and agree holiday dates, and also select an annual
secretary, so all work is shared.
Running costs are £50 per
month. This almost always covers all bills. The new engine and a good overhaul
to the rig cost more but these jobs are now done and extra expenditure should
be minimal in the near future.
The experience and decision
is a “no brainer” if you want to cruise on a yacht in Greece.
A single sailing holiday
Charter would cost more than the ownership.
If you are interested and
want to ‘live the dream’ on Southern Comfort you must be able to demonstrate an
ICC or RYA competence or have sailing experience that will cover this, which is
a necessity for Greek law and insurance purposes.

share, in September 2021, or possibly other date, by agreement.
