Mechanical & Electrical




This Clipper Class yacht has been in the same ownership for some 30 years, having left hire in the 1980s, and was extensively rebuilt in the 1990s. Work included (but was not limited to) the lengthening of her cockpit for very comfortable day sailing, new decks, new transom, and a new hog and garboards. Being relatively lightly built with performance in mind, the owner informs us that she is a lively yacht to sail whilst still remaining easy to handle with her sensibly sized rig. Her hull is easily driven, which results in quick and responsive performance. An ideal day sailer, but still with comfortable berths for two and a lifting cabin roof to make spending extended periods on board pleasant, this yacht will appeal to any one looking for a sprightly, performance oriented river cruiser but wishing to avoid the complexities and additional crew requirements of a larger and more complicated rig.

PLEASE NOTE: This vessel is exempt from the Boat Safety Scheme (the vendor has confirmed this with the Broads Authority). The blocks shown in the transom photos are not included in the sale, but will be replaced with something appropriate by the vendor prior to sale.

This boat is seriously for sale and sensible offers will be considered.
