Beautiful wooden sailing yacht ****engine needs replacing **** Bermudan Cutter Rig
We did a big renovation project on her 2015-2016 including: removing white gloss, having transom and some side planking replaced and new copper coating on fibre glass sheathing on keel. We sailed her a bit in Bristol Channel then from Bristol to padstow in 2017 at which point the engine gave out. She's been on hard standing since then. Her mast (new in 1989) is stored just next to her (was removed for transportation by road due to engine failure). She comes with rigging.
We've now got young children and lack of time and money to sort out engine and use her like we'd planned. She's a bargain at the price. She is currently stored at Suffolk yacht harbour.
Here are some of her key features as originally advertised by the makers:
Light but strong and reliable construction
Speed and manoeuvrability combined with stiff and comfortable behaviour at sea
Comfortable cruising accommodation for five persons
Sail plan suitable for racing but easily operated when single handed
Exceptionally high standard of workmanship and finish

These little yachts have an enormous amount of useable interior volume for a 33’ boat. The benefit of the centre cockpit is that it splits the accommodation into 3 separate areas which is very useful whether racing or cruising.
The aft cabin is entered through the sliding hatch with steps down. U-shaped berths give ample space for 2 people with the tiller stock between the berths. Sitting headroom throughout the aft cabin.
Steps down over the bridge deck into the main cabin. Engine is recessed behind the companion steps and under the cockpit sole. To starboard is a varnished drop leaf mahogany table with seating around against the hull sides.
Galley to port with a small work surface and single stainless steel sink which drains overboard. Water from 2 x 35 gallon welded plastic water tanks each side under the cockpit.
Heads compartment to port with a manually pumped sea toilet
