Owners Comments

My wife and I purchased ‘Old Harry’ towards the end of 2014. A lovely boat, structurally sound with good engines. I set about refurbishing her for our own use and pleasure. I did not have a budget in mind, however was determined to get it right.

An example of my thinking in the refurbishment – Our first night on board. Well the mattress was worn out, a very uncomfortable night. Remedy, get a new one made to measure. No, not a foam one, a proper sprung mattress. We have always had the most comfortable nights on board since. If anything was not exactly right, it had to be made right.

We have now sadly come to the decision that we should sell her to someone who will enjoy her as we have.

All invoices of the works completed, and recent surveys can be provided.

Owners Comments

We purchased ‘Tiger Blue’ from a friend who had refurbished her on a no expense spared basis.

During our ownership we have kept up service schedules for all items.  Only selling as we now have more free time and so able now to undertake more long-distance sailing.

Life on board Tiger Blue is extremely comfortable with no compromise as to sea-keeping.  Extremely good visibility from wheelhouse steering position enables year-round use.

An extremely competent, well equipped and comfortable sea boat with a strong pedigree. ‘Tiger Blue’ has been a joy to own.
