Purchased by her current owners in 2011, ‘Fochintulla’ has been lovingly cared for externally, and internally she has been brought right up to date with a very attractive galley and homely main living area. Domestic fittings throughout and upgraded 12v and 24v systems make this a perfect live-aboard to take to the city of your choosing and live for a fraction of the price of a conventional house. Alternatively, with the fantastic sea-keeping that the Coaster 49 offers, ‘Fochintulla’ would also be at home exploring the coastline and canals of Europe.
Currently on the hard standing at Fairlie Quay, ‘Fochintulla’s undersides have been stripped of all the anti-foul and painted in primer, ready for anti-fouling to be applied before next season.
