Aloa 29




This Aloa 29 was built in 1981 to a design by Group Finot, who designed her as a fast cruising yacht that also had good accommodation.  She can sleep five in two cabins.  The forecabin has a ‘V’ berth with infil to form a double berth with stowage under, in addition there is a long pilot berth aft of the galley area. The separate heads compartment is to starboard with the wash basin opposite.  ZORBA was fitted with a Jabasco marine toilet in 2008.

The  saloon has a seating area to starboard converting to a settee berth, the settee opposite has a trotter box forming a second berth with a central table between.  The galley is to port and is equipped with a two burner gas cooker , oven and grill, a stainless steel basin, a large coolbox and ample stowage.

To starboard is the full sized chart table with switch panel, instrumentation and further stowage areas.

In addition an eberspacher warm air heating system was fitted in 2007.  The saloon has recently been updated with cream upholstery which is complimented by black curtains.

ZORBA is powered by a Volvo Penta MD7a 13 hp engine which is sea water cooled and was checked two years ago.

This Aloa 29 is masthead rigged sloop with a slab reefing main (2013) and furling genoa (2013).  All controls lead back to cockpit for ease of sailing when short handed.  The decks have non slip surfaces edged with the addition of a distinctive black anodised aluminium toe rail.  The hull has been epoxy coated.

As she has been ashore for two years some TLC is needed to bring her back to her best.  Her deck needs re-painting and although her engine was checked last year a full service is recommended.

ZORBA will be lifted into the water in August 2017. If you are looking for a fun cruising yacht or club racer then this Aloa 29 is worth a look.
