Current Owner's Comments

'Vivette' has had quite a lot of work done on her over the last few years. We have done the following:
New standing rigging in 2018
We've fitted a refrigerator in the cool box
Stack Pack - Jeckells 2017
2 x new 12v 105 amp hour batteries in April 2021
New prop shaft - Volvo sealed unit - shaft bearing in 2017
New 120 litre Plastimo flexible water tank in December 2020
Work to keel / hull joint by Larkman's 2021
We have found her to be a safe and reliable boat; a joy to sail and stay on. It is only because of a change in circumstances that we are regretfully selling.
