New Instructions – Sovereign 32 for sale

Tuesday, 12 June 2012

Boatshed Dartmouth are delighted to offer for sale a truly superb Sovereign 32. The presentation and specification of this yacht is truly outstanding and I challenge anyone stepping onboard not to feel both impressed but also immediately comfortable in the spacious saloon. The vendors have spent a lot of time and money on improvements and updates – all to a very high standard. Most importantly the engine has been replaced with a Nanni (2005) and the teak decks were replaced in 2006. At the same time she was re-wired as well. Please note that this yacht is offered very well equipped and complete with a lot of inventory. The sprayhood shown in the photos is the ‘second sprayhood’ there is also available a No1 included in the sale. Early viewing is recommended. Appointments to view can be booked in advance 6-days a week directly with Paul Singer your Boatshed Dartmouth broker.

New Instructions – Jeanneau Voyage 12.5 for sale

Tuesday, 12 June 2012

Boatshed Dartmouth are delighted to offer for sale a Jeanneau Voyage 12.5. This yacht comes from a time when wood was used extensively throughout the interior and the result is a warm and pleasing saloon, with ample light. To aft are two twin berth cabins with their own washbasin. To port is the main heads (with holding tank). All the cabins are large and well appointed making her suitable for long passage making or even a live aboard. She is easy to handle both under power and sail and has plenty of stowage. The standing rigging was renewed by Graeme Harris in 2012 and Garmin GPS 4008 radar chart plotter was installed in 2011/12 Appointments to view can be booked in advance with Paul Singer your Boatshed Dartmouth broker. The yacht is currently at sea so advance bookings to view are being taken for her return.
