Seamaster Sailer
A rare opportunity to own one of these roomy little yachts. 23ft long with a wind up keel so she can take the ground.
9hp Volvo Penta engine which is younger than the 1970 of her hull.
Her below decks accommodation is more spacious than her length suggests. Reasonable headroom also - 5ft 6ins. Separated and discreet heads - handy for those of us with a genteel disposition!
Useable and roomy galley and sink. Recent upholstery.
ARIES has a good 4-wheeled and braked trailer which allows her to be towed by a long wheelbase Land Rover or equivalent.
Humorously labelled as a 5 berth and indeed there is room for 5 sleeping combinations although the optimum is for 3 - pointy end , saloon and starboard quarter berth. All with plenty of length.
Presently on B46 at Port Edgar until mid September after which ARIES may be viewed on the hard at North Queensferry Boat Club. A friendly member could probably point her out, especially at the weekend.
Not available from end Sept until 1st week in Nov but you can leave a message. (Father of the groom duties in Oz)
Other items and equipment can be discussed when viewing.
Contact - Mobile 0752 137 1996 except for period end Sept to 1st week in Nov. Family nuptuals in Oz!

Fin keel, masthead rig. Currently lying ashore in Granton. Needs interior tidy-up and electrics and minor exterior work though could be sailed this season and was day sailed as is in 2012.

I bought her in 2010 after she had been ashore for a few years and sadly she has only been in the water for one summer since.

Outboard bracket and non-operational vire engine inside.

This is a fantastic boat, very roomy but needing work, these usually go for £4.5 - 6K hence just after what she cost me. A buyer could apply to join Forth Corinthian Yacht Club and apply for yard storage to work on her, or potentially even apply for a mooring in Granton.
