Broker Remarks

Talaris is a very comfortable Cruiser/Racer with a fine pedigree of winning silverware. She has won the Conwy River Festival twice (Trojan Class in 2015 and Olympian Class 2016) as well as a significant number of competitions with Conway Yacht Club. She has become quite well known locally as the boat to beat! In the three years that we have owned her we have invested in shore power, a battery management system, converted the cool box to a fridge, upgraded to an LED masthead tricolour/anchor Light and a new VHF aerial. As well as her racing pedigree, she is also a very comfortable cruiser. She sleeps 4 in 2 cabins and another 2 in the saloon. A great family boat she offers something for everyone, very responsive and easy to handle. Her stability in the water makes her an ideal family cruiser and her turn of speed means she can be fun to race too. With two keen ‘hands on’ owners, who always keep her ship shape, she is ready to cast lines and sail away today!
