Thank you for your interest on our yacht "Free Bird"
Due to an ongoing shortage of yachts on the UK market, frustrated further now having to pay VAT on any 2nd hand EU boat, regardless if VAT has already been paid, we have taken the difficult decision not to sell Free Bird until we find a suitable replacement boat.
If you are interested in our boat, please still send me a message through this web site and I will be in touch, as and when we find our next boat which we are actively looking for. I'd be delighted to tell you all about Free Bird - She is an amazing boat, fast and comfortable. Please indicate in the message if you'd like me to call you. Always good to chat about boats :-)
A pristine example of this fast cruiser racer that has been lovingly cruised in its current ownership since 2015 by a family of 4 with a huge selection of cruising and race sails, the latest additions being Rolly Tasker CDX7 2+2 Main and Genoa in 2018 and a new professionally fitted Yanmar 3YM in 2019, complete with new gori folding prop.
In Nov 2020 Free Bird has had professionally applied International Gel Shield epoxy finished with Seajet grey antifoul, overseen by Yacht Surveyors Saunders Morgan Harris. Report available if required. Additionally she benefits from a reinforced keel matrix as per the Beneteau Approved System, completed by HYS this year. Warranty and report comes with the boat.
If you enjoy sailing and are looking for a boat with comfortable accommodation but a real turn of speed, then this is your boat. Webasto heating ducted to the saloon, cabins and heads means for a relaxed and comfortable yacht, perfect for family sailing what ever the weather.
