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.

Owners Comments

Little used 1996-2000, hence sale. 2000-2013 moored at Woodbridge in Suffolk – some weekend sailing locally on East coast and 4 trips to Holland and Belgium. In 2013 I accompanied a professional delivery skipper and crew to sail SABA to Greece. Since then she has been wintered at Aktio and Ionian marine with summer holiday sailing in local Ionian.

No known damage, accidents or insurance claims.

Last survey 2000
