Broker Remarks

Owners Remarks:
Slipper has been in our ownership since 1988. We have cruised her all around the UK as a family boat.
We have cruised her to the Mediterranean in 2000 and kept her in Spain, she was superb for us to spend extended holidays on and allowed us to see some amazing location and experience some beautiful sailing conditions, and we returned her to the UK in 2015. She was on a swinging mooring on the Dart prior to coming ashore in 2018 due to work commitments.  We have had a continual maintenance schedule for her since she has been on the hard standing to ensure the working systems onboard continue to work as they did when she was afloat. We cover the boat in a heavy-duty winter cover during winters to protect her from the elements.
We are reluctantly selling our much-loved yacht due to ongoing work commitments.
