Great boat with the strength of a snapdragon but the sailing performance of the westerly. Great upwind performance for a bilge keeler.
Great service history from previous owners with receipts going back to when she was launched.
Sadly selling as our father is not with us any more, and the kids are not interested.
Great equipment level with loads of fairly recent tech.
Lying on the foreshore at Leigh-On-Sea and can be sailed by serious buyers, or seen dry if you do not mind muddy feet!!
Priced realistically for a quick sale, some of the headlining needs replacing.
