Pylstaaart has been sailed mostly single handed and the owner confirms she is a dream to handle. She has a powerful sea-kindly hull with long centre keel with internal moulded-in 2.1 ton lead ballast and twin bilge keels and will quite happily hold her course on most points of sail with the tiller left unattended. With varnished Afromosia top strakes, cockpit, hatches and rails and solid mahogany cabin joinery with spacious accommodation providing 4 berths in 2 cabins plus one hidden pipe cot that pulls out.
New Jabsco sea toilet in 2005, 2 burner gimballed ORIGO 3000 meths cooker new in 2004, Readio/cassette player, Wet and Dry Hanging Lockers. Taylors paraffin heater.
This classic yacht provides all weather, year round sailing opportunities

A very pretty boat with beautiful joinery and equipped and fully capable of handing long distance sailing. The current owner of the last 13 years has maintained her well with an ongoing schedule of updating and replacing as required. Pylstaart is a traditional boat with a lovely light and spacious interior with safe side decks and a dry cockpit. The owner tells us that she is such a dry boat that he boasts he suffers from dust in the bilges!
