|This staysail schooner has given her owners thousands of miles of effortless sailing. She is a Bermuda rigged schooner, three deep reefs in the main, hanked on main staysail, inner forestay and furling genoa. For light winds a loose footed fisherman may be flown above the main staysail or a flying genoa may be poled out alongside the furling genoa. Reducing sail is very easy and there are many sail combinations to enjoy whilst sailing just two handed.
Fully repainted in 2013 plus complete hull maintenance including all new sea cocks and new cutlass bearing in 2012, and a new propeller in 2014, she is in very nice order. The interior is heavy in traditional teak joinery and is extremely attractive.
A comprehensive survey report, made in January 2014, is available upon request.
