|A beautifully presented and cared-for club racer, still very capable on the race course. Invader can handle both around the cans and offshore competition, as well as offering comfortable enough accommodation for cruising on the way home from Hammo. Recently repainted and refurbished inside and out, we were really impressed with her presentation, and having been with the same owner for 15 years her history and racing record are well-known. She's had a motza spent on her, everything works, and there's nothing to spend before heading off for the start line.

||Sleeps 6+ in a clean, spacious and airy interior in white flowcoat with timber trim.
With a deceptively roomy cabin space, Invader has two settee berths and 4 pipe cots. Recently completely refurbished her interior is far from the 'aromatic' and 'grubby' dungeon that bewails many a racing yacht! With enough style and comfort to offer cruising ability, after Saturday's fling around the cans you can enjoy a comfy night aboard celebrating before a well-deserved kip!

||Invader comes from the same proven performance stable as 'Illusion' and 'Pendragon' - both famous 3/4 and 1 ton race winners that are still picking up the silverware. She's definitely not the average, neglected 'dinosaur', and will suit the competitive sailor looking for an affordable, easy to sail regatta yacht with proven credentials and outstanding presentation.
Owner is now spread too thin over too many passions (!), and sadly has not enough time to indulge in his beloved yacht, so reluctantly Invader must sail on to new glories.
Definitely one for the picky - will definitely not disappoint at inspection.
