The best way for you to see our boat is to watch our full boat tour video, which you can find on our YouTube Channel.

I also have a website post with 108 photo's and 3 videos, so if you are interested, please check out the post here:


It is our intention to sell this boat in the next 4 weeks so please don't delay if you think you might like to buy her. We are selling her for £16,000 GBP.

This boat is set up for living on the hook, so if you want to start an adventure in a beautiful part of the Mediterranean, with this boat you can do so this season, without wasting time on a refit before you can start enjoying life afloat.

Whether you choose our boat, or another one, we wish you fair winds and we hope you might follow our adventures on our new boat where we'll be shortly sailing from the UK to the Mediterranian with our baby daughter (Yikes!). You can find our videos on youtube at www.youtube.com/sailingbritaly
