by Sophie Jessome
(Martinique)





Fully Loaded for Liveaboard, and Ready to Set Sail!

Boat is currently in Martinique & Registered in France (no taxes)

We put all our hearts and time into this solid boat, and it saddens us to part with it, but proximity to our family and new work is calling us back to the land for a long time.
This boat is now to be a great sailer and a highly reliable boat with its tough and thick hull. It is very easy to handle and is extra safe with a center cockpit. It has lots and lots of storage space, which is very convenient! It sleeps 6 comfortably.

We installed 2 x Lewmar48/2-speed self-tailing winches for the headsails. Hullpaint is brand new form last december. We used AWLGRIP 2000. Boat has been extended in the back to accomodate going up and down the boat with a fibreglass construction that is integrally part of the boat.

TOILET/SHOWER
Inside toilet RM69, Gray water tank (mandatory in the states and other countries )
Seperate shower system is outside -- A USB charge pump you immerse in a bucket linked to a shower head. We charge it every month and a half. Very convenient and saves lots of water and electricity. The pipes for the inner shower are still in place, we just don't use them. There is a bilge pump in the toilet for that purpose.

We reinforced the chainplates with epoxy and portions of the roof (which is Balsa). We also fixed two areas that were humid when we boat the boat. We rebuilt the kitchen which was old and yucky on the purchase, so all new wood.

Things to be done: Mainly this is esthetics. Revarnishing the wood and repainting parts inside, as relining the bulkheads in the 2 cabins. The dodger is getting pretty old too. I mean, it's still fine to sail with, just not pretty.

Asking Price: €35,000
