Broker Remarks

Dragonfly is a very solidly built sailing cruiser. Being built in 1970 she is of a heavy lay up making for a very strong vessel with no weak points (these boats are virtually indestructible by today’s build standards). She had a full out of the water survey in 2008, the antifouling was removed back to the gelcoat for the survey and the hull was found to be very dry. Two coats of Gelshield was applied at this time to keep her fine for the future. It is hard to find a vessel so well maintained and that you only have to enjoy her (no ugly jobs hiding away needing to be carried out at your expense). She is seaworthy and sure footed under sail (giving her a well balanced and very forgiving feel) making her easy to sail. She sails from light airs to a blow and all without fuss, sails being made easy to handle with features like easy reefing slab main and foam luff roller furling genoa (2006 all like new). Benefiting from a 2006 modern Z-spars rig she powers to windward, she sails stiff with the minimum of heel and the ample freeboard makes for a dry boat (giving confidence for nervous crew). When the wind drops the two year old diesel (renowned Yanmar 1GM10) will jump into life and power you with ease and confidence. Control under power is brilliant due to the high thrust prop being just in front of the rudder (she can spin on a sixpence) taking the work out of marina berthing. She has a comfortable interior comprising of two cabins with full headroom throughout. Six berths in total, two in the enclosed forepeak cabin in the V berth style. In the main saloon there is one quarter berth, one settee berth and a double berth converted from the dinette. There is a neat galley area with S/S sink and drainer and S/S twin burner cooker plus lots of cupboard space. A good sized table (will take a full sized chart open) makes up the four seat dinette area and for the times when its in use there is a smaller navigation aid table by the settee berth. She has lots of locker space. The saloon is kept fresh by the air recycling system (nothing goes home smelling like diesel). None smokers. The interior feels welcoming and comfortable. There is a contained full size heads. The windows are all new tinted Plexiglas for your privacy. She has electric lighting throughout and a hanging locker with towel shelf. At the end of the sailing season take her home on the RM road legal trailer. She has all the relevant history and instruction manuals in order. I will offer one days handover and instruction in harbour or at sea included in the price.


6 berths in 2 cabins. The forward cabin has a v berth configeration with 3 large lockers underneath the berthing. There is pleanty of stowage and lighting in forpeak cabin, also acces to the chain locker. The saloon is a dinnette style of which converts to a double berth and two singles. There is also a chart table and plenty of stowage.
