River Hamble Hampshire UK|
For sale is my ¼ share of Mara, a Gibsea Seamaster 35. This is a 10.6 meter sailing yacht with a draft of 1.7 meters.
This a well-cared for, lovely example of this 1991 cruising sailing yacht. The Gibsea Sea Master version has two separate double cabins along with a saloon containing twin berths. There is a large shower/wet room behind the extensively equipped navigation station.
The yacht is moored at Deacons Marina on the River Hamble, with walk-ashore berth. It has had the same berth for 15 years and the current owners wish to keep the current arrangements. Berthing fees are paid for this season through to March 2023 and will be included in the sale. The marina is operated by Boatfolk and therefore you can visit other Boatfolk locations overnight free of charge.
The sale of my ¼ syndicate share includes all fittings and items with the boat when you view, which includes dingy, life raft last serviced in 2021, lots of emergency equipment etc. The yacht is fully kitted out with everything you need to enjoy your sailing.
The engine is a Yanmar 27hp 3 cylinder and is annually serviced by the syndicate. The gearbox was replaced in February 2022 along with the flywheel damper plate. A new propshaft water seal was also installed at the same time.
There is a cruising chute and or a spinnaker sail. The old Genoa is available as a spare should an eventuality arise.
The yacht has been upgraded with a new autopilot and digital compass, new main in 2018 and Genoa in 2019. The hull is copper coated. The mainsail cover has also been replaced.
Standing rigging was replaced in March 2021. The windlass was serviced in March 2021. A new Danforth anchor was fitted in March 2021. The engine battery was renewed in November 2021 and the leisure battery renewed in April 2022.
The syndicate is well run, with the current administrator having been an owner for over 15 years. Annual costs including berthing vary between £11500 and £12500 per year, split 4 ways equated to an average of £3000 each. This includes berthing fees, insurances and regular maintenance work). Most small maintenance items are generally sorted by the syndicate members, however expert assistance is sought for larger or more technical items.
The syndicate aims to keep the boat in good condition, with maintenance costs and activities shared between owners.
Potential buyers may consider their own survey although the last survey was in 2016 is available to view. Lift out can be arranged directly with Deacons yard. The syndicate price does not include this aspect.
Mara is usually out of the water in between late December and early March for winter maintenance.
The syndicate anticipates that you are Day Skipper qualified before taking her out with your own crew. If you don’t have the qualification, but can demonstrate competence, the syndicate may ask you to commit to obtaining the qualification within a timescale.
Your sailing allocation is normally at least 9 weekends per year with Friday and Monday being considered as part of your weekend. Weekend allocations are agreed at the beginning of each year and swopping of dates is a regular occurrence. Other midweek times can be regularly used subject to fair use and agreement with the other owners. Longer trips away can also be readily arranged. I normally expect 30 plus sailing days per year, but this year it will top 40 and I often sail with the other owners.
