Broker Remarks

This Cobra 750 is a well maintained yacht we have a good maintenance history of this boat. She has been in the same ownership for a number of years and always been well cared for.
The boat is currently moored on the picturesque River Yealm (Yam) so please allow some notice for viewings.
The boat benefits from having a reconditioned Volvo 2002 engine fitted in 2005 by the local Volvo Penta agent (paperwork to back this up), She has had a new mast purchased before the current owner purchased her, the standing rigging is not original and has also been replaced but  not thought to be in the past 10 years, the running rigging is in good order and the lines are all lead aft to the cockpit to help with short handed sailing.
The current owner uses the boat regularly and mainly coastal hops the southwest coastline, but with many weekly trips during the summer months up the Yealm and outside the river mouth.
She is moved during the winter months to a drying out mooring on the Yealm on a spring tide she will not float until the next spring so she is technically dry for winter as she sits on her bilge keels.

Owners Comments:
I purchased the boat in 2004.  Although it has been under-used, constant care and attention has been lavished upon it.  The sails are in excellent condition and the powerful 18 hp Volvo engine has been a real ‘tide beater’.  The boat has only been sailed in local waters between Exmouth and Falmouth.  Being a bilge keel boat it has been ideal for exploring the many rivers and inlets along the coast.  The boat is easy for a single sailor to handle, as all running rigging can be controlled from the cockpit. The boat is in a remarkably good condition for its age.
