'Sea Bunny' is the original (Rassy/Enderlein), sloop rigged, version of the popular GRP long-distance cruising HR42 marque and has successfully completed two circumnavigations. The second of these, with us, was mostly two-handed and covered over 60,000 nautical miles.

She is for sale with much regret as we now feel that we have reached a stage in our lives when long-distance cruising is behind us. 'Sea Bunny' is well equipped for ocean cruising but is equally at home in local waters.

She is well equipped for cruising with solar cells, 2 wind generators, sprayhood, bimini and cockpit closure, watermaker, Raymarine chartplotter, radar and fishfinder, HF/MF marine band radio, heating, large domestic battery bank, 2kVA inverter, even air conditioning for those maintenance or R&R stops in tropical marinas!

GRP moulded hull and deck with encapsulated iron ballast in long fin keel, rudder supported by 3/4 depth skeg. Sacrificial shoe fitted to lower part of keel and wire from keel to skeg. Teak covering on deck replaced 2009 (Thailand). Topsides repainted 2016/17 in Trinidad (except blue stripe - 2012 in Thailand). Coppercoat antifoul system applied 2012 (Thailand), touched up 2017 (Trinidad).

Extensive refits undertaken in 1997 (by previous owner), 2001 (UK), 2009 and 2012 (Thailand) and Trinidad 2016/7.

Rig: Forestay replaced 2014, remainder of standing rig replaced 2016

'Sea Bunny' is currently berthed in Plymouth, UK.
