1986 One Design 40

Levington, United Kingdom


Was £37,500 now only £29,995

Originally conceived as an offshore racing vessel, Roc was strongly built to cope with any weather conditions and keep going, no matter what.  She has completed three OSTARs, three Round Britain & Ireland races, three AZABs, a Solo 1000 mile offshore race, Bermuda One Two, Three Peaks Race, Petit Bateau singlehanded races, RORC two handed races, Triangle two handed races and the Universal 500 with a number of wins and good placings.  Well laid out for shorthanded sailing and with a practical seagoing layout below, she has proved to be a fast and easily handled cruising yacht.
