Co Galway Ireland|
Sí Gaoithe is a solid and safe cruising vessel. Being a bilge keel she enjoys a 1m draft so can access shallow waters and dries out upright and effortlessly at low tides.
She enjoys an unusual feature of a self-tacking jib with all lines running back to the cockpit. This greatly simplifies sailing and make her suitable for single-handed sailing if required. The modern open plan saloon is bright and makes the most of the interior space. She is moored at Ros a' Mhíl marina in Conamara, Co Galway. These marina berths are much sought after and it may be possible for the new owner to retain the berth if required. The berth is served with water and electricity making working on the boat a simple affair.
The location of the marina leaves the Aran Islands, Inisboffin, Roundstone, Clifden and Galway City within easy reach.
There are two joint owners. Both are qualified Yachtmasters and have much experience of skippering yachts in Ireland and abroad. One of the owners is mechanically adept and has maintained the engine to a high standard, regularly changing the oil etc.
A boat share may be an option.
