Broker's Comments

The current owner of this Caravela 25 has proved her to be a very capable little yacht indeed.

During his last three and a half years of ownership, he has sailed her in the Thames estuary, all along the South coast of the UK, to the Channel Islands and to the North coast of France including Normandy and Brittany.

In addition to sailing her far and wide, he has also carried out quite an extensive maintenance and improvement schedule including repacking the stern gland, fitting a new cutlass bearing and new Plastimo furling gear amongst others.

Due to an upcoming busy work / travel schedule, he would now like to sell her on to a fellow sailing enthusiast.

Currently ashore on a boatyard in the Plymouth area, this vessel is ready for inspection and purchase for the upcoming season.

A great little starter boat, simple, practical and easy to sail.
