The condition or level of safety equipment on board is not to be negotiated on following survey. It is likely to be listed by most surveyors but is not structural or an integral working part of the vessel and is not to be used to further negotiate the price down after survey. We strongly suggest that for your own personal safety that when purchasing a yacht you provide new safety equipment rather than relying on second hand gear.

Should you become the new owner of this yacht then the responsibility to re-register or update official bodies for items such as EPIRB, VHF, MMSI or AIS becomes yours.


A fantastic example of these respected cruising yachts. Still in her original ownership lovingly maintained and extensively cruised in UK and Northern Europe. GPS log of 12,150 nm covering French Coast, Baltic, Dutch canals, Friesian Isles, Kiel Canal, Dutch and German coasts, UK Circumnavigation going through the Caledonian canal.

This yacht is a proven cruiser, fast, comfortable and with her lifting keel gives you some many additional options that a fin keel yacht just can’t offer.
