Lovely Maxi yacht, similar to a maxi 77 but slightly larger. Volvo Penta MD7A 13hp diesel engine, a bit of a hard starter but runs beautifully, saildrive seals need replacing (note this is NOT the boot that keeps out seawater as this part is completely fine and was replaced just before I purchased her. It is the propshaft that keeps water out of the gearbox, I have a set of replacement seals that come with the boat). She needs some minor electrical and plumbing work such as tracking down a short in the interior lights, repalcing the freshwater pump and a new ignition barrel for the engine. The companionway doors also need re-varnishing. I have greatly enjoyed her in the past 3 years I've owned her, she was in anglesy last summer and cruised the irish sea the year before. I am only reluctantly selling as I am entering the final year of university and do not have the time or money to keep her.
She has the following interior fittings:
A Taylors Paraffin stove and grill
Analog depth sounder - old but works perfectly and accurate

silva S15 Marine radio
There is plenty of locker space under all the bunks and seats, two aft bunks and a forward v-berth. The central dining table can also be lowered to form a double bed.
Sails included are the main, jib, and a damaged genoa that could be fixed relatively easily, only one tear. There are also two spinnakers however I have not used these as despite the deck fittings existing to use them there is no spinnakker pole.
also included is a redcrest dinghy plus outboard. The honda outboard runs well but can stall on very low revs.
