About this Gesten Glasfiber Badevaerft (Denmark) Granada 31

English

REDUCED FOR QUICK SALE!

Built in 1978 this nimble masthead sloop is still an absolute pleasure to sail... designed by Paul Elvstrom (the pre eminent sailor of his time), Diamond Sky is beautifully balanced and a pleasure to sail and handle solo or with a crew. She is perfectly balanced in any wind strength, and easy to sail on the tiller. Max draft 1.75m.

I had her surveyed prior to purchasing in 2016 and she has had light use since then, including some memorable holidays and sailing with family and friends. I am just about to replace the main standing rigging on the mast, and the foresail furler. In the last 3 years the boat has benefitted from: an engine (Mitsubishi Sole Mini 26hp) service including head gasket renewal; a new depth sounder, a new wind vane and masthead nav lights; renewal of anchor chain; annual antifouling of the hull; and, renewal of various sections of running rigging. The sails were upgraded (Main had a transparent window fitted) and the foresail had a UV strip fitted).

Accommodation is what you might expect of a boat this size and age that is not built like a tub. I've cruised comfortably with two other adults, and with one other adult an 2 children. there is a small double berth in the bow, and saloon seating which converts to a generous double berth. There is a manual heads with shower attachment, and a small cooker and a fridge/cool box. If I was going to keep her I would probably take the cooker out in favour of a railing-mounted BBQ, and upgrade the fridge motor.

The inflatable is a Seago 2.6m with electric pump, and oars. Presently there is no outboard motor for this as I sold the old petrol one with a view (pre pandemic) to replacing it with an electric motor.

Various tools and lifejackets are included, along with fenders, lines, and an auto pilot for the tiller. There is an old GPS plotter below, although I've always used an android tablet for navigation.

Diamond Sky is located on the hardstanding in Bonaire Marina, a small, well run, and perfectly located marina in the north eastern corner of Mallorca on Pollenca Bay, near to Alcudia and within easy striking distance of the magnificent cruising waters of Menorca and the whole coastline of Mallorca. The waters of Pollenca Bay look and feel tropical in summer. (Note: the new owner will need to negotiate a mooring with Bonaire Marina as Diamond Sky has been out of the water since March 2020 - I was unable to access her due to pandemic restrictions.

Like all boats of this age there will always be something to do to maintain or upgrade - but she is exceptionally pleasurable to sail and will continue to give pleasure for many more years if cared for.

I'd be happy to discuss options and viewings.

Location

Presently on the hard standing at Bonaire Marina, a small but perfect marina in one of the loveliest locations in Mallorca - on Pollenca Bay (great day sailing, family friendly coves and beaches) and a short hop from the epic cruising coastlines of both Menorca and Mallorca.
