42ft Ferro cement sailing yacht an Island Sun 42 designed by Robert Tucker .
Professionally built in 1980 by the Ferro Cement Marine Services.
To be Sold as a "project", she has to move off her present mooring.
the vessel has been neglected for passed two years plus, her owner went into a home and has since passed away.
The vessel is secure and afloat but is full of gear and equipment, there's a chimney but not stove, much of which is in a very sorry state.
She is Junk rigged, hers sails and spars remain bent on but at least they are covered.The machine engineered hollow masts x 2 remain stepped and have been painted.
She is roomy inside and has generous headroom. A fore cabin and and aft cabin. Saloon galley heads and companionway steps are amidships.
She has wheel steering from a deep cockpit pit, aft. A wind generator aft on a frame fixed to her transom.
Certainly not one for the faint hearted but she would make a great cruising home....
