For Sale Solo 3799  

Built by Tony Thresher, it has a dark blue hull and varnished wood decking and is in good/very good condition.

I have owned this boat for several years, but it has only been lightly sailed, the last time about five years ago, after which I stopped sailing for various reasons. Since then, it has been stored with covers on and in an airy, dry car port at home. Not long after I bought the boat, I refinished the deck and cockpit sides with two coats of West System 105 epoxy, followed by seven coats of spar varnish.

The hull has a few minor scratches on the paint-work. There is a single sail in good, crisp condition, a Super Spars mast (can't remember which one now). The rudder blade is wooden, with a wooden stock.

The boat comes ready to go and sail, with over and under covers, a tail board with lights and cable, and a Rapide combi trailer, also in generally good condition.

£1000 ono
