Advertiser's comments

“Weekend” has spent the last 16 years in Essex under current and previous ownership.   In the past her keels have been lowered and re-bedded (approx 12 years ago).  Her last owner also purchased a new set of sails, sprayhood and spray dodgers and has had some work carried out to the engine.  Her previous owner cruised to the Frisian Islands, Belgium and France as well as participating in Cruising Club cruises and sailing on the East Coast.  She has a lot of very good gear and equipment, but does suffer cosmetically from poor headlining, internal upholstery and re-painted topsides, hence a very attractive price.
