    Kingfisher 26, junk rig converted and extensive customization.

    Hull stripped back and treated for osmosis and lovingly painted last season.

    Volvo Penta MD6A engine, top end rebuilt last month new gaskets etc.

    030 Taylor's paraffin cooker/oven with a couple of spare burners.

    Deck has been modified for extra storage (mingming 1 style)

    Internal cabin extensively modified to make boat more suited for single hand sailing Bigger galley more storage.

    Home made wind vane self steering and powered auto helm.

    Depth finder. a few anchors loads of spares.

    Folding plastic dinghy included.

    This boat needs some work but not loads.

    Memory foam cushions need upholstered and the deck has been primed but not 'toplacked'. I have the paint but figure as selling the boat new owner can have final say on color and maybe have a bit of a bonding experience with the boat while painting it.

    I'm asking £6000 for this boat and it is based in Cardiff Wales.

    I had saved a great shot of Sui some time ago.
    Now if only she could be "teleported" to South Africa.

    I am officially a terrible seller it seams :)

    Dropping price to £5.500.

    If anyone has some expert advice and tips for selling boat be much appreciated.


    I would consider selling her for less without the cooker as I can probably sell that for a decent amount on ebay.

    Zoe, one of the best things you can do, is what you just have done: make a comment on your own posting to bring it to the top of Recent Posts again.  A lot of people can't be bothered to mine the individual fora. 

    It also might be worth contacting people who have commented on other Kingfishers for sale, to see if they are interested in yours or might know someone who is.  After all, if you can't help other members of the JRA, why bother joining?

    She looks a fine boat. I'm sorry that you are having to part with her, but hope you find a good steward soon, who will take her over and enjoy her.

    Thanks for advice and comments.


    She is indeed a fine boat and also hope she finds a good home soon.

    I think I have basically even though advertising boat still been on fence about whole thing so not been putting much effort into it I suspect.

    Time for that to change though :)
