by Philip Hopcroft
(England)



SORRY, NOW SOLD!



'Wandering Star' has been constantly maintained and has given us years of pleasure in the Solent. It is a bilge keeler which means that we have been able to explore the most beautiful bays which are in shallow waters, such as Newton Creek, Keyhaven, Christchurch, Bembridge and Newport.

The Cobra 850 is robust, easy to sail and will be ideal for someone just getting into sailing.

Designed by David Feltham and built in the UK by Cobra Yachts, she's 28'6" overall with a 9'6" beam and displaces 7,750lb.

'Wandering Star' will sleep 5 people and is fitted for comfort for the cruising sailor.
