New Instructions – Contessa 34 for sale

New Instructions – Contessa 34 for sale

Monday, 24 September 2012

Boatshed Dartmouth are delighted to offer for sale a Contessa 34 Offshore One Design. Doug Peterson drew up a hull design that was clean, free of distortions and genuinely fast. However as many owners will agree these are comfortable cruisers as well. Stepping on board this example on a fine, bright sunny day it was apparent that this yacht has been used and enjoyed by the past and current owners who are looking to go up in size. She would benefit from some updating but she is a Contessa and can still turn on some speed and as the current owners wrote “… sails superbly and is a very quick boat.” She will shortly be lifted and subject to acceptable offers the vendors will include winter storage and re-launch in March 2013. Appointments to view can be booked in advance 6-days a week directly with Paul Singer your Boatshed Dartmouth broker.

Health issues force the sale of the seller’s dream boat.

It is always a pleasure to step on board a beautifully clean and well presented boat. That was my first reaction when I stepped aboard this beautiful Bavaria 330 Sport. The owners have obviously spent a lot of time and effort to keep her in top condition, not to mention the money they have spent on all the recent improvements.

New Instructions –Windy 7800 for sale

Thursday, 13 September 2012

Boatshed Dartmouth are delighted to offer for sale a Windy 7800. Not often seen in the UK these are really good looking boats – classic lines that don’t date and plenty of good Windy build quality too. It was a fine summer day when I photographed this boat and she presented herself as a clean, tidy, well cared for boat. On great days like this is when the spacious cockpit and the aft sun deck come in to their own. But there is a reasonable cabin too with a galley area and flushing heads for when the weather is not so good or you want to stay out over the weekend. Appointments to view can be booked in advance 6-days a week directly with Paul Singer your Boatshed Dartmouth broker.

New Instructions – Warrior 40 for sale

New Instructions – Warrior 40 for sale

Tuesday, 11 September 2012

Boatshed Dartmouth are delighted to offer for sale a Warrior 40. This fine, semi-long keel cruiser evolved from the Angus Primrose designed Voyager 38. Bill Dixon designed what was in effect a stretched version with encapsulated ballast and roomier interior. For a 40’ yacht the interior space is excellent especially with the C Layout (features the large forecabin, twin aft cabins, twin heads and nav station in the port aft cabin). When I first went onboard I was impressed by the excellent presentation of this yacht, the high standard of maintenance and of course the splendid Volvo D2-55 engine installed in 2004. With a cutter rig, in mast furling and everything led aft this is a great yacht to sail and is offered with an excellent inventory. Appointments to view can be booked in advance 6-days a week directly with Paul Singer your Boatshed Dartmouth broker.
