Its great to see one of these again, I sailed one for a summer as a teenager and we hacked up and down the channel ports in what seemed like constant sunshine and a steady F5!
This one is in great nick, with a relatively recent engine and a professional topsides spray job with many seasons of shine left in it. Kitted out with a sensible suite of gadgets, on deck it is set up for single handing and below she is tidy and original, having not been mucked about.
She is one of the better bilge keelers of her era and has a pleasing performance, easily competent in Wednesday evening thrashes round the cans whilst comfy enough for offshore forays with the family. Of course those twin fins also make for some great budget mooring options!
If you are looking for a budget boat or if this is your first yachting adventure, then this one is well worth a look.
