1983 - Built by Mellor Engineering in Manchester to a Bruce Roberts design with an impressive history of long distance passage-making, including Leslie Powles' "Solitaire" which has completed three circumnavigations. This yacht is a very seaworthy blue-water cruiser which has been well fitted out below decks with quality hardwood joinery. Encapsulated lead fin keel and skeg hung rudder with tiller steering. The hull was stripped and expoxy coated in 1996, and was inspected and found to be in good order in 2004. Good navigation gear, berths for 6, and powered by a 48HP Petter diesel engine. The galley has a paraffin stove, double stainless steel sink, worktops, cupboards and a pressurised water system. Professional valet inside and out, including hull polish & antifoul (July 2015). 3 anchors, warps, fenders included. Vendor's 2015 survey available. | Video tour available at www.harbouryachts.co.uk.
