Kip Marina, Inverclyde
"I will be selling my lovely F25 once the lockdown has ended which will hopefully still leave someone time to get some use before the season ends. Having owned a F25 previously, I knew what to look out for when buying Shimna and I believe that she's an excellent example (Northshore 1988 No.225) – an exceptionally dry boat, fresh and in good condition. I spent last summer on the hard carrying out some general maintenance and improvements and she's been in the water at Kip over winter but ready to be lifted again to allow me to spruce things up a bit. Powered by an older, yet reliable, Yanmar 3GM30 she has a lovely hull which was subject to a £6000 overhaul by a previous owner (unfortunately there is no paperwork to confirm) and good condition tan sails. It's hard to think that anyone viewing the boat would be disappointed.
The photo is from last summer. I will shortly be tidying up the woodwork and any other jobs which still need attention, really as an ongoing work in progress and not through necessity.
I find it easier to answer any questions by phone or email rather than trying to write down every single detail which might be of interest to you but I welcome any contact and can hopefully provide quick answers. Thanks. Alan"
