Broker's Comments

I used to sail one of these in the Baltic back in the ‘eighties – great little boats, and tough as old boots!

This particular one completed the Jester Challenge back in 2010, and you can see plenty of evidence of how she was prepared for the task; she has a carbon fibre bulkhead and beefed-up chainplates.

Sadly she is now showing her age, and there are some blisters appearing in her hull. Don’t let this put you off folks, she is still a lovely little boat, and you can take a view as to whether or not you treat them. I’d be tempted to just grind ‘em out and make good, that will last you a couple of great years-worth of sailing in a modern classic!

If you’d like to come and see her she is ashore and ready to view, just give me a ring on 07885 521960.
