Description form the owner:

She was moulded in 1972 and fitted out 1974 by the Essex Yacht Co England.She is made of GRP and is the 'Buccaneer' version with the raised poop deck and large stern state cabin.She is ketch rigged with tan sails. She still has her original 72 horse power Perkins 4236 engine

Second owner bought her in Malta in 1996. The first owner had the boat made for him and moved it to the Mediterranean soon after. He maintained it it to Lloyds A1 standard until sold. The boat has been maintained to a high standard ever since

The hull is in very sound condition and is showing no signs of osmosis. In fact, the boat has been stored on land almost all of its life, only being in the water for around 8 weeks of every year. The hull under the water line is in excellent condition as it was stripped back about 5 years ago and new epoxy layers applied, followed by antifouling. The top sides are in sound condition but are a bit dulled from the sun. The gel coat on the decks was sanded back and re gel coated around 5 years ago and again is in sound condition for the age of the boat.

New foresail roller reefing was fitted about 15 years ago and is still in good condition. The standing rigging has not been replaced since we have owned the boat but has been maintained and some parts replaced.  All the running rigging has been replaced at various times and ranges from good to new in condition. There are also loads of spare halyards miles of mooring lines etc. The spars are original and show some age but all in good working order, as are all the winches

The sails have not been replaced since 1996. They are tan, reasonably sound but faded. There are also a number of other sails including storm jib etc which are original but have hardly been used so look almost new.

The engine has been meticulously serviced and maintained every year including oil change, fresh water flushing, laying up for winter etc. Various parts have been replaced over the years and there are also numerous spares. The engine has never failed in over 20 years of use, starts 1st time every time and runs smoothly with plenty of power.
