‘Freebie’ is a very pretty, stable, bilge-keeled, 4 berth yacht built by Robert Ives in 1969. The model is called the Robert Ives 421 and it is of heavy GRP construction with no evidence of osmosis. The previous owners carried out a fair amount of renovation work never using her under sail, but she is now complete with mainsail, genoa and working jib. I have replaced the running rigging, sheets, halyards etc The original inboard, a 2 stroke single cylinder Stuart Turner P5 is still there, has run shortly with easy start but cant get to run at present. The electrics have been well engineered in the past, nav lights (untested), new bilge pump, VHF radio, depth finder (untested), new battery, interior lights, gas stove, sink, plenty of fenders.Have Fitted Solar and has a decent leisure batteryI’ve uploaded Youtube of the boat and outboard see “Freebie Yacht Sale robert Ives 421” PaGAXS2zdpI hoDyxhngvx8 oqiJqniS9MUShe is a 50 year old boat and is not perfect, but very usable as is. She was painted a few years ago by the previous owner, anti-fouled at the same time. I have owned her for about 6 months. Ran around on sand two months back, (see last photo) as a result the keel and a bit of the hull needs sanding and fiberglassing. Also could use repainting currently in Ynyslas Boatyard near aberdyfi.LOA 20’6” Beam 6’10” Draft 2’6There are other listings stil around from when i bought her just search Robert Ives 421 (you can see the sails up in these)
