This listing contains some provisional information: details may change


Celestia is a beautifully restored version of the Foxhound 24 (fin keel), now with refurbished spars, a new fractional rig, with Dyneema and pre-stretched polyester running rigging.
Designed by Uffa Fox, the Foxhound is well known for its excellent windward ability and top class off-wind performance - also an exceptional performer in light airs. A large loose-foot mainsail by Westaway and a short-foot jib and a tri-radial spinnaker by North - all sails new or recent.
Power unit is a refurbished Volvo 2010, fitted 2018 with Gori 2-blade folding propeller.
The Foxhound displays remarkable stiffness, which makes for a comfortable cruising yacht with an easy motion at sea.
In really good condition for its age, Celestia has now been reduced to £6,900, because the owners are moving on to their next yacht.

This is a splendid opportunity to purchase this yacht as deigned by the famous Naval architect Uffa Fox to be a sea-going family cruiser and also capable of winning races.

Call Mike for more detail.
