£64,900 VAT paid

Built: 1990
Currently lying: Burnham-on-Crouch, UK - United Kingdom

This listing contains some provisional information: details may change

Present owner of Rhumb has during the past 10 years of his ownership fitted a new engine (Nanni 43hp), new rig and fitted much new equipment including generator, AIS, water cooled fridge, new cooker and much generally upgraded.
Sails have been regularly cleaned and maintained, complete with North spinnaker and nearly new asymmetric chute by One Sail.
We have been involved with this yacht from the beginning when she was built and subsequently her sale to several earlier caring owners.
Successive upgrades and careful maintenance have provided for trouble-free cruising and we are impressed by her general condition and presentation.
We understand that although the teak deck is in reasonable condition, certain repair work and caulking will soon be required.
Rhumb has had the benefit of loving care and attention during the past 10 years with a high level of maintenance and generous provision of new equipment, in preparation for ARC 2015.
Call Mike for more detail if required, now on the market at £64,900.
