- The interior of this vessel fairly gleams with varnished mahogany. The main cabin area has 2 single berths plus galley area (providing an Electrolux 2 burner spirit stove, a sink with manually pumped cold water, and cupboard and locker storage) and a folding table. Her VHF is mounted in this area and she has a repeater speaker in the cockpit. The forepeak provides two further berths (convert to a double) plus a Blakes Lavac sea toilet, which fits under the berths and pulls out when in use. Privacy is provided by a locker door which doubles as a screen. This area also provides under floor stowage for the folding table. The boat has a good-sized, self-draining cockpit with lockers under the seats.

We sold this boat to her current owner about 5 years ago. In the interim we understand that: running and standing rigging was checked and renewed as necessary in 1997; the port side of the cockpit was rebuilt in 1998; the Morse stop cable was renewed in 2001; bilge pump was rebuilt and the sink skin fitting replaced in 1999; berth cushions were recovered in 1998; the companionway hatch was rebuilt in 1999; the mast and boom were professionally re-varnished in 1999; the sails have been valeted and repaired each season and the diesel engine has been serviced and de- and re-commissioned each winter, as have the vessel's batteries.
A beautiful example of these classic, tough sailing cruisers and excellent sea boats. She is in class and takes part in cruiser division races. Keel bolts were replaced 1996. They say if a vessel looks right, it probably is right - this one looks lovely, though it is understood to be in need of a little cosmetic tidying.
