The boat was built in Cape Town in 1987 and was then sailed to America. I bought her there in 2004 and sailed her back to Spain. At the beginning of 2005 I moved her to Smir, Morocco and took the whole boat apart, sandblasted the hull and repainted it. I also built new booms and bowsprit, installed the water maker and generator and many other things. Since then I have been sailing in the Med. and was twice in Sardinia. At the moment I spend most of the time in Mallorca.
* Evidence of 5 years clear title.
* NON VAT paid - currently in the Spanish VAT warehouse scheme
* No RCD Certificate - her current status means any buyer intending to keep her in Europe will be required to obtain an RCD certificate. Buyers taking her outside of the EU may not require this certificate
