Rig

Bermudan sloop rigged yacht with B&R 9/10th fractional rig. The swept back spreaders and reverse diagonals eliminate the need for a backstay which makes movement around the boat simpler. This does not compromise on performance and she has a good turn of speed. Sailing her is very simple and the added bonus of in-mast furling, further simplifies things when sailing short handed or with an inexperienced crew. 

Rigid boom vang and mainsheet track on cockpit arch keeps the boom away from head height and gives good control to helmsman. All lines are led aft via a series of turning blocks and deck organisers to cockpit. Genoa tracks are mounted on the coachroof making the side decks free from obstruction. Stainless steel standing rigging and terylene running rigging.

Sails include an in mast furling main and a roller furling genoa. Although sails are original they are in a good condition with sails inspected and any stitching needing replaced was done in November 2022. Lewmar 2-speed, self tailing winches mounted either side of companionway.

Interior woodwork at the galley, chart table and companionway has been cleaned, sanded and varnished.

The saloon is entered via the companionway with its 4-section smoked perspex wash board system. Two steps down and you are in the saloon with L-shaped galley to port. The galley has good work surfaces and excellent storage under the counters and mounted on the hull.

This is fitted with a drain for easy cleaning. Microwave oven.

Aft of the chart table on the starboard side is the large heads compartment. Jabsco electric flush toilet with shower seat above. Shower with mixer tap. Sink with corian top and porcelain bowl.  Hot and cold pressurised water. Drawer storage. Angled mirrored vanity unit increases light.
