"Sonya" has been based at Titchmarsh marina for many years, her previous owners purchased in 1989 and maintained the boat to a high standard during their long ownership. French Marine Motors rebuilt the engine in 2003 and have maintained it since, the sails are good and a 2017 survey was carried out for insurance purposes with main recommendations carried out. She is remarkably original with lovely white shiny gelcoat and super interior. She has been ashore for quite some years before her present owner purchased and gave her a full cosmetic overhaul, upgraded some of the equipment and gas system. She has been polished and antifouled ready for the next season!
