Broker's Comments

It is believed to have been built in Dusseldorf in 1979 by an unknown builder. It has a canoe stern and is a derivative Colin Archer design copy. It has a cutter rig with twin backstays and roller furling genoa.. A fully encapsulated lead long keel gives the vessel excellent directional stability.
In the same ownership since 1994 the interior has been completely refitted, lead ballast removed, cleaned then set in GRP to form solid bilges.
Set up for short handed and single handed sailing with effective self steering and easy rig control, it is known to have crossed the Atlantic and the present owners have completed 10000miles around Europe. It can best be described as a heavy cruiser which offers surprising performance over long passages and high levels of security and comfort at sea.
Cedar lined cabin with a solid fuel stove and good continuous ventilation make for cosy and dry living accommodation.
