Joie De Vivre is a lovely and well cared for example of the versatile lift keel version of the 29.2. The minimum draft is just 0.8m (max 1.6m) which means you can access shallow creeks and harbours, whilst the twin rudders allow the boat to settle and dry out level if desired. The boat was built in 1998 but commissioned in April 1999. I acquired the boat from the first owner in October 2009 and am selling reluctantly, for personal reasons. I have done most of my sailing solo (with the tiller pilot providing a "hand on the tiller" when required) and have always found her to be a fast, fun, safe and reliable boat to sail. She has a reliable and powerful Volvo Penta diesel engine with low mileage, and two batteries. I have had a calorifier hot water system added with a 30 litre tank supplementing the 50 litre cold water tank. The cool box has been converted to a fridge, and there is a two burner gas hob in the kitchen. A lazy jack system and jack stays have also been fitted. Navigation equipment includes compass, boat speed, wind speed/direction, log and depth gauge, VHF, chart plotter, Autohelm ST tiller pilot, and barometer. The spray hood and main sail cover were replaced in 2012 and a new weather strip fitted to the furling headsail in 2018. I have recently spent almost £2000 on a full engine service, hull clean and polish, new anti foul, new anodes etc, ready for the 2019 sailing season. The boat is comprehensively equipped and all on board equipment, ranging from a barely used inflatable dingy and outboard, life raft, life jackets, EPIRB, flares etc, right down to the crockery/cutlery etc, is available for purchase by negotiation, so you can buy this boat with everything you need to set sail, bar the food and drink!
