Owner's Remarks
I bought Cobalt in August 2018 and sailed her from Walton-on-the-Naze 700 miles back to Portishead. She certainly proved  all her hoped-for qualities; Stable and stiff, the flared hull ensured a dry deck, comfortable cabin. The Volvo Penta started first turn of the key.

When I took her out of the water in Portishead, I found that the sacrificial anodes had not been replaced, which meant a new propeller and drive shaft. She has been well maintained and the engine regularly serviced.

I am selling because with false knees I cannot sail single-handed so it is time for another family to enjoy her.
