    Owners Comments

    A wonderful opportunity to own a beautifully designed, small sailing yacht, which is also a cabin cruiser. In season, we moored Thika on the Exe Estuary between Starcross and Exmouth; a deep water mooring, sheltered and ideal for exploring the South Devon coast and beyond. A survey report (Oct 2018) is available, the conclusion of which says that “Thika is a generally sound example of this classic sloop but is in need of some repair". Recommendations are given. Replacing the fire extinguisher with a new BSEN3-approved unit is needed before putting to sea. Thika is ashore at the moment, with cover on, awaiting a new owner to look after and enjoy her.
