This fantastic epoxy over foam core West Custom Marine Solent racer / fast cruiser with two spreader mast, rod rigging and Carbon boom, is an ideal regatta boat or family weekender.
Fully equipped for racing, cruising and deliveries with 4 mainsails, 6 jib's on Tuff Luff forestay, two spinnakers (plus two spinnaker poles) and Lewmar winches; She sleeps six (plus two if required in pipe cots) in a spacious, light and comfortable interior and is auxiliary powered by a Perkins 18Hp engine with two blade folding propeller.
Last antifouled in September 2015, she benefits from boom cover, winch handles, kedge anchor, chain and warp, mooring warps, fenders, shore power lead and boat hook.
This fantastic epoxy over foam core West Custom Marine Solent racer / fast cruiser also benefits from a single point lift which means that she can be easily dry sailed, if required, without the costs sometimes associated with boats of this size.
Fully equipped with depth, speed, log, wind-speed and direction instruments together with Garmin GPS and VHF radio.
2005 IRC endorsed certificate available on request. This boat sails well to her rating and has only been raced lightly with some great results during her life in local waters, however to see her you would think she were almost new.
2011 Insurance survey available on request.
British Registered (Part III / SSR)
This West Custom Marine Solent racer / fast cruiser has been maintained in excellent condition by her single owner from new and really must be seen to appreciate how boats can be so well cared for over time. Today's designers could benefit from seeing her ingenuitive stowage design both below and on deck which make her a real pleasure to sail.
I strongly recommend her to any future owner considering a mix of fast family cruising and regatta sailing.
A sought after berth in Lymington is available with this boat.
