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.

Further Comments

An incredibly powerful and respected blue water cruiser. Capable of taking you round the world in comfort or just long term cruising to explore coastal destinations. Her cutter rig gives you real cruising performance, the centreboard lifting keel takes you to areas that other yachts just cannot go or dry out on. Part of the Allures family of cruising yachts that can expand your horizons in comfort and style. One owner from new and presents in super condition, well equipped and ready to go.

Featured in 2015 June edition of Yachting Monthly by respected writer Graham Snook. Please ask us for a copy of this very positive test report. Additional sailing photos of can be found on Graham Snook’s web page from 2015.

Quote “GS relishes a breezy test sail aboard an innovative aluminium centreboard'. The sailing verdict tells you she goes 'like a train anywhere from 40 degrees off the apparent wind', is 'impressively agile' and 'easy to sail single handed'. Her shallow draft with keel up enables you to moor her on a beach, perfect for family or long distance cruising”
