History & Construction:

Designed by Bernard Olesinski and built in 1987 by Fairline Boats, it shares the highly-regarded and capable planning hull design with the Turbo 36.  The hull, deck and superstructure are moulded in ivory GRP and deck fittings are anodised aluminium and stainless steel.  Owned by the current owner for the last two years,  Last out of the water March 2023 when she was antifouled, hull polished and anodes changed.  Gas system was last certified in July 2022. Vessel was last surveyed in April 2021 and all recommendations completed. 

Business Opportunity:

"Drummer" is currently equipped and coded for commercial use in Cat 2 waters as a sea school.  A new owner would have to apply for a new code certificate and provide some safety equipment  However, Elite Sailing would be interested in entering into a joint venture agreement with a potential purchaser for continued use of the vessel for RYA training. 

Estimated net annual income to the owner is approximately £10,000 net of all overheads. In such an arrangement the existing code certificate could remain in place.
