FRANCES 26 FOR SALE; A CHOICE

Simon Fayers has long had a passion for the Frances 26, and long single-handed passages, especially the Jester Challenge.  His most recent boat SHEBECA is on the market, fully ready for her next challenge, at a non-negotiable asking price of £17,500.  However, recently, nostalgia has got the better of him and Simon has re-purchased BLUEGRASS, an earlier owned boat, that he sold to Guy Willing who also prepared her and undertook the last Jester Challenge to the Azores.  You might ask what Simon and Guy have in common; they are both involved with the Royal National Lifeboat Institution so they know what makes a good sea boat.  Both SHEBECA and BLUEGRASS are ashore at the moment in Cornwall.
SHEBECA will be relaunched in the Spring for her summer season while BLUEGRASS needs a little cosmetic attention hence her slightly lower negotiable asking price of £17,000.  She is however two years younger and has a better specification.  Both have wind vane steering and full particulars and photographs are available from s.fayers1@btinternet.com or 01326 290644.  Simon can arrange viewings and transportation, to a new home, for any Victoria Shadow Association member.  Simon intends to keep whichever boat he is unable to sell.

Please note that Simon has reduced the asking price of both SHEBECA to £17,000, and BLUEGRASS to £16,000.
He is very keen to sell one of them so make him an offer that he cannot refuse.

Please note that SHEBECA has now been sold and BLUEGRASS will undergo a winter maintenance period before Simon utilises her himself during 2019 and beyond
