Sailing BoatsClassic Sailing BoatsBuchananBrabant classVery reluctant sale of this, Alan Buchanon Brabant Class. She is a go anywhere, classic fast cruiser. I have owned this yacht for twenty years and she is part of the family. However, the family is growing and I no longer have the time to maintain this fine vessel to the standard she deserves.Incredibly seaworthy and safe. My friend has circumnavigated the wooden version of this boat in the footsteps of Sir Robin, sailing solo with only one stop in New Zealand.
So well balanced, she’ll stay on course close hauled without touching the helm. All lines led aft so can be easily sailed single-handed.
Steel construction hull and decks with a mahogany cabin epoxied and painted white.
She’s on the hard at Holyhead boat yard and is in need of painting and cleaning to get her shipshape. Would also benefit from replacement of pulpit which was bent last year when she went for a little trip on her own when she broke her moorings.Also available is a deepwater mooring at Holyhead which I will sell with the boat – at a loss – for £1,500.00…*
