LA BARCA E' STATA COMPLETAMENTE RIVERNICIATA ESTERNI ED INTERNI NEL 2008. *** New painting interopr and exterior from 2008. This yacht was developed as a fast day/weekend cruiser to be sailed by the family, but with the ability to be raced in coastal races with a full crew. The deck layout reflects this with major sail controls located within easy distance of the helm position and grinder pedestals providing plenty of centralised horsepower for sheeting. An electric winch is provided for hoisting the mainsail. A retractable bow prod allows easy downwind sailing with asymmetric spinnakers. The hydraulic lifting keel, anchor capstan and all engine controls are operated from the helm position. The carbon rig is built with similar dimensions to a Volvo 60 race yacht allowing the use of second-hand testing sails from syndicate inventories. The structure has been engineered by High Modulus (NZ) Ltd. in excess of the requirements of the American Bureau of Shipping Guide for Building and Classing Offshore Racing Yachts 1994 and whilst the design brief called for a daysailer this yacht is fully offshore capable.
This is a unique opportunity to acquire a traditionally styled centre cockpit yacht with good sea keeping qualities, high specification and modern equipment. Shoal draft capabilities, bowthruster and new spars and sails including in-mast furling main make this an ideal choice for short handed sailing and blue water cruising. A professional 6 year major refit has just been completed to a high standard so early viewing is highly recommended. Engine and control panel were both new when professionally installed by Volspec in 1999 and have only been used for sea trials since in 2006. During her current ownership 'October Girl' has undergone a major refit which began in 1999 and was completed in 2006. This included the hull being sandblasted and epoxy treated, topsides and superstructure repainted and all external woodwork replaced or revarnished. Many fixtures and fittings were also replaced along with the masts, booms, furling systems, rigging, sails, electrical and gas installations, instrumentation, engine, water and fuel tanks, shaft, propeller, windows, pushpit, pulpit and rubbing strake. In addition she has been updated with a holding tank, bowthruster and electric windlass fitted and her interior has had new upholstery, curtains, headlinings, furniture, cooker and sink.
Supplied by us to the current owner in 2000, this is a very well maintained example of these strong pocket cruisers, with standing headroom and much new equipment. Highly recommended.Danforth bower anchor with chain and warp. New sprayhood, Dodgers, New sail cover 2007.
