The vendor has owned SULIS for ten years and it is believed she had around six previous owners.
When he first bought her the hull was stripped right back and she was moisture tested and found to be dry.
She has been used for gentle sailing around Start Bay and on the river Dart, and each winter she has been dry stored ashore.
“SULIS” is a lovely boat to sail and always attracts people’s attention who frequently comment on how pretty a boat she is. She will comfortably carry up to six people and he is only selling because of his advancing age.
