Sovereign 400 - £37,495

This is a truly classic yacht offering strength and elegance. She is not a production line yacht but was built by Port Falmouth Boat Yard to a Rob Humphreys design, one of only seven produced. She is GRP with Kevlar reinforcement.

Souveraine sails well, easily averaging 6 to 7 knots and her hull shape and elliptical lead fin keel makes her a safe and comfortable boat even in rough seas. The cockpit is deep offering protection and comfort for crew. She has a fully battened main with stack pack and lazy jacks and a furling genoa. There is a self launching mechanism for the anchor and an electric windlass.

Down below she offers attractive and comfortable accommodation with real wood finish. There are a total of 8 berths and two heads compartments and a well equipped galley.

When the present owners bought her in 2001 she was fully overhauled and checked. They have continued to maintain her and she is currently out of the water for routine servicing. The teak deck has been cleaned and recaulked where required and the sails have been cleaned and repaired. The engine and fuel system has been serviced along with the gearbox drive-shaft seal. The engine has been winterised. The propeller has been checked and polished. Valves have been checked and the rudder gland checked and repacked with grease. The hull has been cleaned and, below the water line, primed ready for anti foul.
