Petit Calivigny, Grenada

£199,116

Shiraz is a truly impressive gentleman's sailing yacht; a rare opportunity to acquire this timeless classic. The current owner has crossed oceans and lived on board in comfort and style, while maintaining and updating her. The seller says “All new upholstery in 2007. Fully equipped with bed linen towels and plates glasses cutlery for twelve people. Lots of spares and quite a few tools. There are of course some things that need to be fixed as in all old boats. Hence the reduction in price to leave room for updates and repairs in budget. The boat was hauled in 2021 and new primer and bottom paint applied. Liferaft recertification 2021. After re-build and closing of the centerboard pocket she is now launched and ready to go.( January 2022). Full rig inspections and necessary repairs and updates done (2021). Sails overhauled and cleaned as where needed (2021). Two new battery chargers - Victron installed 2018. New cockpit cushions and fully enclosed bimini and sail covers 2015. New Windows in bimini 2019. New generator 2016. New refrigeration and 75 litre water heater 2015 (both Isotherm). Water circulation heating system built 2009. Runs throughout the entire boat. (good in Swedish wintertime!). She now needs a new owner to enjoy and care for her.
