Owner comments - Willpower has been well maintained and is in very good condition for her age. She has sailed in the UK as far afield as Brighton and the Isles of Scilly and has crossed the Channel several times, visiting Normandy, Brittany and the Channel Islands. She handles well in all conditions and being a bilge keel is great for exploring shallow creeks. Between Oct 2010 and May 2013, she was kept ashore at Exeter Quay whilst we were working abroad. We have owned Willpower for 14 years and have had many enjoyable sailing holidays, living aboard for up to 5 weeks
