She has a unique customised interior layout and this owner monitored the build process from start to completion. She has visited some of the most exotic anchorages on her way to Thailand over the last 22 years and is a joy to sail in any conditions. When the going gets tough, she really gets going, averaging 8-9 kts effortlessly. She has even had some good regatta results: 1st in Division in Phuket 2010 and numerouse placings. She is delightful to sail and very easily handled. Constantly upgraded and ready to go, she literally comes with every possible bit of cruising gear you could possibly need and then some more, including pots, pans, cutlery, crockery, spares, linnen, fully stocked dry food larder. She presents like a five year old yacht. Recently stored on the hardstand (end of April 2013) for the steamy wet season while the owner cools off in Europe. Priced to sell... She is a bargain in any language!
