Now re-marketed at a vastly reduced price, this is amazing value for such a strongly built quality yacht.
She is a unique 70 foot Steel Staysail Schooner originally built by Hugh Maclean and Sons on the Clyde to full Admiralty standards and converted in the late 1980's by K G McColl & Co Ltd Portsmouth, for their own family use, into this superb ocean going live-aboard sailing yacht.
She has 2 tons of steel ballast in the keel and a further 2.5 tons internally along with approximately 12 tons of original welded ballast in the hull.
With a massive 1200 litre fuel storage tank and dual 182 litre service tanks and 2000 litre water tanks she is truly set up for long distance work. Extensively sailed around the UK and on an Icelandic expedition she has proven to be very strong and seaworthy. She would also be excellent as a youth adventure / training yacht or expedition vessel.

10 berths in 5 cabins - each cabin has two single bunks.
Galley:
Full size electric cooker and hob with secondary gas hob.
Full size microwave.
Sink with hot and cold pressurised water.
Automatic dishwasher.
Lots of storage space.
Sails:
Genoa, staysail, foresail and main (approx 310 sq m).
The Genoa and staysail are hank on and the foresail and main are slab reefed.
Working Jib, Storm Jib, Trisail, Spinnaker with twin poles.

Radar GPS VHF
Electrical System:
24 volt DC, Onan-Cummins 17.5MDKBR-E14 17.5KVA 230v 50hz generator.
Shore power.
Independent starter batteries and extensive domestic batteries.
Equipment:
Full size automatic washing machine and tumble dryer.
Automatic dishwasher in galley. Three diesel cabin heaters.
Additional Info:
Very well maintained, she would probably only need a navigation instrumentation upgrade and new sail covers to be ready to go. Main fuel storage tank in keel with a capacity of approximately 1200 litres.
Dual service fuel tanks, each of approximately 182 litres each filled by pump from the main storage tank.
