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 very well equipped example of this spacious cruiser/racer with the performance keel. Only ever in private ownership and lightly used. Well maintained with a high level of equipment perfect for long term liveaboard cruising.

For a potential buyer it might be interesting to know that the combination of the MAX-Prop feathering propeller and the 110hp Yanmar engine works very well. Under Sail it has as little resistance as a folding prop and under engine it gives an easy cruising speed of 7,5 knots at 1900 rpm. we reach 8,5 to 9 knots at 2.600 rpm. She is not only fast under sail but under engine as well. And the prop gives enormous power when maneuvering.
