This Kings Cruiser has such lovely lines and she will be a dream to handle as she is very responsive. A true modern classic. She managed to go from Dover to Boulogne with tide in her favour in 5 hours! Magnificent. The cockpit has nice deep combings and is of fine proportions. These vessels do tend to be owned by keen sailors.

This vessel is quite rustic below, but really well laid out given the space. She has a lovely feel to her too. The upholstery is not thread bare but some people may wish to update. The forward cabin is quite a good size and there is storage throughout. In the main cabin the saloon seats can be utilised as single berths. The boats table was ingeniously made to fit onto the door to allow for more space to move around when at sea. Note there is also a 2 burner cooker under the worksurface on the portside. I will photograph it next time I visit.

Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.
This Kings Cruiser Class 29 is a beautifully proportioned sailing yacht and she will appeal to both the seasoned sailor and a beginner. She had completed the Round Great Britain Race in 1997. The owner sailed her all the way round and not through the Caledonian. She has been to Europe many times too. She is a real modern classic with absolutely gorgeous lines. A much loved yacht that needs a new enthusiast to take her on more voyages.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
