Polished and scrubbed

We’ve polished and scrubbed to make our home sparkle for the photos for the yacht brokers website JRYachts.com. It’s sad to take these photos knowing that soon she will move into new hands and new adventures — but we’ve enormously enjoyed our time aboard and she has created hundreds of memorable and golden moments for us all to treasure as a family together.

For the last two years this has been our home. The boys have enjoyed sharing the bunk room leaving the forepeak cabin for guests or as a playroom.

The galley, the kitchen, is small and compact but great to cook in whilst sailing when you need to wedge yourself in to hold pans.

The saloon which doubles up as the everything space ranging from homeschooling, eating, Lego building to entertainment.

Behind the saloon is the chart table and through into the master cabin. The woodwork is outstanding – true craftsmanship went into building this yacht.

The outside where we live in the cockpit for eating, schooling and entertaining. Both a great sailing and party boat!

It’s been an amazing adventure and it’s still not quite over yet!

  1. She looks as good if not better than when I first saw her over 21/2 years ago! Pretty good considering an additional 15,000 miles. I expect Pete Sanders would be interested in how his sails performed bearing in mind they were not new.

    1. The sails have been superb, one tiny pocket repair to one baton and that’s it for 15,000+ miles!!! Sanders sails are fantastic. For the long ocean passages downwind we did put pipe lagging on the spreaders to protect against chaffing, and it worked – no damage at all.

    2. It’s also thanks to Trevor for looking after the boat so well before we bought her! We’ve cleaned her top to bottom each week too to ensure she continues being gorgeous

  2. …Team Hall – she looks super sleek! As Mac says looks even better than when we picked her up from La Rochelle on that sunny day in September 2018. Top memories for you and for her initial crew – Russell, Mac, Paul and Nick. I’ve never enjoyed crossing the English Channel more than that night – high drama and then relaxing a little when we saw The Needles! Bon chance to ‘Kathryn del Fuego’ and to Team Hall care on the great adventures on terra ferma!
