Matida 8m wooden swingkeel sloop, c. 1998

by Alan Kenworthy
(Heywood, UK)

Fine example of East Anglian craftsmanship, ready to sail, no maintenance problems with this yacht, it is in pristine condition.

Will need only an outboard bracket.

Bargain price for yacht and triple axle trailer, £2600.

Conventional layout like a Westerly Centaur, but interior is gorgeous, high quality woodwork.

Plywood on frames, two chines.

Stainless push- and pulpits, safety rail.

6 hp outboard, serviced.

Fitted liveaboard.

This was someone's pride and joy.

I must sell her, I can't sail any more.
