A 35 foot motor sailor regarded as the 'sailors motor sailor' as she sails well. As 'Riviera' technical member of the owners club, I advised many other owners on all aspects of this superb vessel. A substantial yacht with the ability to make serious passages safely. 500 litres of water and 250litres of diesel give her a massive range of 600nm. A fin keel but only drawing 4'6" enables her to explore the canals and rivers. Commissioned 1992/3. Light usage and continuously upgraded. Has virtually everything a sailor would dream of having coupled with a dry and protected original hull. Full cockpit bimini and tent. New saloon upholstery, windlass, Glomex multiplex and antenna, chain, pilot, radio, instruments, batteries, new toilets and plumbing, standing/running rigging etc etc. Two full heads and showers. Cruises at 6.5knots and capable of 8knots. Maintained by an eccentric engineer the engine and gearbox are original and excellent, using no oil. There is an engine blower that will get you home in the event of coolant failure and emergency deck mounted navigation lights. 140watts of solar panel mean you can park up for as long as you like and be self sufficient. Modern led. lighting inside and out.
Sailed down to Spain/Portugal 3 years ago and stayed 3 months. Single handed Biscay return. Built under Lloyds of London supervision and bearing the famous plaque. This yacht is all about quality and this is an opportunity to buy one of the last off the production line. Hit a whale with this one and it will have one heck of a head ache! Will be around long after modern yachts have expired. This yacht puts many 40' yachts to shame. Winterised ashore for 7 months in private club. Sometimes you get substantially more than you pay for. Please feel free to ask questions. Full survey 5 years ago and engine survey. Excellent dry hull on purchase and I immediately added 3 additional coats of gelshield on purchase.(total 6) Although built 1989/1990, she was not commissioned till 1992/3 and then sailed lightly till I got her in 2014.

Original Volvo Penta 2003 Turbo. In excellent condition and regularly serviced by engineer owner. Uses no oil and runs cool through revolution range. Normally cruise at between 1800rpm and 2500rpm - 5.5 to 6.5 knots. Very economical and if you open her up she flies! Run at 1500rpm and you will have a range of 600+nm. Run at 2,800rpm and you will truck along at 7knots. In the 5.5 years I have owned her have changed all fuel/oil filters and oil at least twice a year. Have removed and serviced the gearbox and oil has been changed 3 times.
GRP construction and very well laid up with good ballast ratio. Deck and coach roof are seriously thick sandwich. The substantial fin keel has been epoxied and is rigid as when new. 250 litres of fuel under the port cabin sole and 500litres of water under the starboard act as additional balance enhancing stability. The engine sits central between the two.
Forward berth is substantial and has a seat and head boards. Berth is nine feet long. There are two lockable doors to the front heads giving private en-suite to v berth and saloon. Hot and cold pressurised water throughout. Saloon is massive and a feature of the yacht, giving 360 degree visibility when sailing/motoring from inside the saloon. Dual wheel operation - hydraulic steering. The saloon converts to a double berth and there is a further aft berth some 6'6" square with its own en-suite and shower. The yacht has more storage space and built in wardrobes and cupboards than even the most discerning wife would require. The owner of a 41' Beneteau came on board and gasped. He told me: "This has more space than my boat". A beam of 12'3" makes for lots of space.
Has had almost everything replaced in last 5 years. Evolution 100 wheel pilot, new anchor/chain/windlass. Cockpit has been re-gelled. Solar panels enable the boat to be self sufficient at anchor indefinitely. Has a brilliant Sterling 3 battery intelligent charger. Sterling Isolator/zinc saver etc. New AIS Radar, Duet speed and depth, Lowrance plotter with mega cartridge down to Sardinia. Full cockpit tent can be left up if it is raining as all controls led back to cockpit. Inmast reefing/furling. Running rigging new last year. New mast cabling when rigging changed last year and new Glomex tv antenna. All ships lights are led. Full saloon blinds (£1700) and internal sun covers. Snap Davits. Fender Holders. Guardrail breaks on each side. SS step ladder. USB and 12v sockets in each cabin.
Have installed two small 'emergency' navigation lights on coach roof. Have installed a large engine blower in case of sea water cooling failure. Run at 1500rpm and this will get you home! Have raised aft steaming light so as not to be blanked by fender holders etc. New prop, Prop shaft, bearing and stern gland. Rope cutter.
Both reefing systems are fully operational. Inmast needs a good silicon spray at the beginning of the season.
Sails are old but seviceable
