Haggis ('the one with the pink kite') is a 2010 built Sonar class yacht designed by Bruce Kirby of Laser dinghy fame. She has an impressive set of results, is well set up for racing, has been dry sailed since new and has been winterised indoors every year.
The Sonar found popularity through their suitability for one design racing and competitive handicap sailing. This is a fun boat whilst remaining easy to handle. Its large cockpit makes it a comfortable boat to day sail.
We look forward to organising your viewing and answering any questions you may have.
Boats are available for viewing on our Sales Pontoon, on the Hard Standing and in some cases further afield. To avoid unnecessary disappointment especially if you are travelling a distance please call the office to make sure the boats you wish to view are still available.
