The boat has been owned by the present owner since 2003 and has had 3 previous owners. During the current ownership she has been berthed in Conwy and used to sail all over the Irish Sea. The lifting bulbed fin keel ensures good sailing performance whilst allowing her access to shallow water. The bulb has a flat bottom which together with her beaching legs allows her to be dried out completely. The double skin moulding and foam infill is designed to make her unsinkable, this is also excellent insulation making her a comfortable and dry boat that is easy to keep clean. On passages she can cruise between 5 and 6 knots and can reach the Isle of Man from Conwy comfortably in one tide, High water to High water. She has been and continues to be well maintained and improved.
