What are we selling?
We are selling our Snapdragon 24 Sailing yacht, the perfect family coastal cruiser.
Please subscribe to our channel and watch our other videos so you can see why we’re selling her.

She’s a brilliant little sailing boat, perfect for a family or couple.
Sleeps 5. Is sea kindly and seaworthy. She won’t win any races but she’ll get you home in one piece.
Snapdragon 24’s have a fabulous reputation and there are active facebook groups where you can get tons of support.
She’s in good usable condition and has everything you need to get started.
Of course I would always get the engine serviced and check the seacocks and things like that but you could buy her today and use her today.

So if you have your own long shaft outboard then take her as she is but if you want the outboard as well then I’m asking £300 for the outboard, otherwise I’ll just keep it as it’s a brilliant engine and I have a use for it myself and you’ll struggle to find another one at that price.

Contact for price and to discuss viewing.

Things I want to point out
1. There is some damp staining on some of the interior woodwork and upholstery from before we owned her when the windows where leaking. The boat is now BONE DRY. I went back to her yesterday for the first time in a couple of weeks and there was literally a mug full of water in the bilge, I was amazed! So yes there’s some paintwork which needs touching up and a few annoying marks on the new upholsterybut it’s not because the boat leaks, its from when it used to leak before we did the windows
2. The toilet isn’t connected up and the sea cocks are in unknown condition. Honestly, we never used the sea toilet and just had a portablepotty. But I recently got this sea toilet which I know is working fine. I’ve popped it in the boat but not yet connected up the water pipes. It’s a 10 minute job which I can do for you but I also think it would be a good idea to inspect and change or at lease service the sea cocks as we didn’t use them and they seem a bit stiff. But that’s something which again, you’d do anyway when buying a boat.

Ok so we know it’s lockdown and everything is a bit messed up and we are happy to accommodate that.
With that in mind we’ll need to negotiate on collection and payment etc.

I don’t want any comebacks on this sale or any messing about so I will meet the purchaser, in person, at the boat to go through everything and even do a sea trial, weather permitting. With that in mind it’s payment, in cash, on collection only I’m afraid guys.
