Chinee is for sale. She is in excellent condition and fully equipped for coastal cruising. More details on her website:
After a lot of deliberation I have decided that I will need a bit bigger space for comfortable family cruising so Chinee is up for sale now. She sails beautifully, tacks well and has kept me safe for many miles. I hope she will find a new home where she will be as loved as she is here in South Devon.
Chinee is currently at the Exeter canal basin waiting to be craned onto the quay. I've paid up winter storage for 2020/21 including a trip back down the canal in the spring, though if anyone wants to trail her away sooner, then I am happy to pass on any savings that I make from cancelling storage early.
The price as listed include all equipment listed here. If a buyer doesn't need items of equipment, we can probably negotiate a price reduction accordingly.
