Broker's Comments

The Sigma 8 Metre Sport is a one off design that has been built for yachting enthusiasts of all ages. It can easily be sailed by a crew of four in all wind conditions. With its' simple rig and sail plan there are no built in speed limits. There is a lifting keel which makes it easy to trailer. It can be launched and rigged without the use of a crane.

However, this boat has had its' rig modified in order to reduce the sail area. It is part of a fleet of Sigmas that were used by sailors of all abilities and so this change makes the boat easier to handle. This is a reversable modification which will enable the boat to perform to its' original design specifications.

This boat is one of six, which are for sale as a fleet also. There is a RIB and all the foulies and life jackets are part of the inventories. This makes this package perfect for anyone looking to set up a racing fleet for a club, or as a commercial venture.

The Sigma 8 has been designed to allow 6 people to sleep on-board. This boat has been stripped right down for racing, and so the creature comforts are minimal. This boat will give all who sail her the chance to experience sailing that is fun and competitive. Next step, Volvo 70s!!
