Racer / cruiser ready to go and winning races

Xstatic has been raced and cruised on the South West and East Coasts in recent years, continuing to perform to a high standard at club and offshore levels.  Her owners have continually upgraded her as required with a major refit in 2015 and much additional and replacement gear since.

Her civilised living with upgraded chart area and galley also provides for happy cruising and longer distance trips.  Aided by her reduced cruising sails she proves easy to handle by her husband and wife owner who praises her ability to offer comfortable weekends or longer trips.

Her new Yanmar inboard engine is effective at pushing her hull along at reasonable speeds and the owner is happy to expand on her race accolades and cruising ability

With a displacement of just 2,980Kg estimated dry weight she moves well in the water.  Her deep keel and deep rudder provide immense grip and the design of Neils Jeppesen has proven to be a winning formula for many years.

Berths for 6 crew.

Marine manual heads behind bulkhead.

Gas hob / sink unit with water tanks and storage below.
