Lymington Hampshire UK
'Charisma' is a fantastic little sailing yacht designed by Ron Holland. Her racing pedigree is matched with a versatile interior, giving you a great sail followed by a good nights sleep as we have adapted the saloon to provide a slide out double berth. She has given us many years of fun sailing and breaks away in the Solent as our starter boat. Charisma has been well looked after and has had many upgrades including:
New standing & running rigging 2014;
Replacement diesel BUKH saildrive plus new fuel tank, wiring, exhaust 2016; hull to deck joints resealed 2016;
New Spinlock clutches & Lewmar self tailing winches 2017;
New Plastimo forestay & furler 2018.
There's a tiny bit of cosmetic work needed that would make her look her best, otherwise she's ready to sail.
Also included in sale:
Bombard 2.4m AX2 Inflatable Dinghy, plus paddle, pump & anchor.
3 tins Hempel Silic-one for next application
Double Burner Hob & Grill (not currently fitted)
Spare reconditioned starter motor

Charisma is a traditional late seventies / early eighties layout and can accomodate five if you are all very good friends! However as a couple sailing her together we have found her beamy proportions compared to the length of boat, just right for holidays together for the two of us, or four for the weekend. We converted the saloon with a slide out double berth, where the companion way steps move to one side to give room. The forepeak can be used for storage and is also where the heads are located. We use a camping stove for cooking (included in the sale) and the original two burner gimbled gas hob is also included in the sale and though this in in working condition it is not currently fitted. 12V and 240V fitted. Built in Panasonic FM Radio / CD. Speakers in saloon and cockpit.
