4 person liferaft
is a safe and comfortable Blue Water capable cruiser. She has a
flexible sail plan and will sail in lighter airs and also help make
you feel safe in heavy weather. She is very happy to heave to when
required. Her engine has been very reliable and has never let us
down. On the negative side she, like all long keelers, has a mind of
her own in reverse, but this is more than made up for by her sea
kindly motion and her ability to track well. Would recommend as a go
anywhere, economical cruiser for a single hander, couple or small
Currently lying in Porto Santo, Portugal. (Spring 2017). Available for Sale £35,000 (ovno).
