Advert Description

Fantastic 4-berth family yacht, this Kestrel 22 was built by an experienced Design Engineer (the owner) and has been owned by the same skipper/family since 1983.
This yacht has sailed the Thames estuary, East and South Coast, to France, Belguim and Holland and, (with mast down) up the river Thames to Lechlade.
Reason for sale: sadly Dad’s recent bereavement.

'Swift Escape' has a cruising speed of around 4-5 knots.
A bilge keeler, she can take the ground if necessary and we have felt safe in her in all weathers.
She really is a lovely boat – we will be sad to see her go.

Dad recently did some work on the engine and had a Marine Engineer attend, so the engine should be fine, (but for safety at sea, ensure you have engine inspected and serviced – standard practice). There may be other equipment to go with her. Hard tender available within the price, condition uncertain.

Out of the water lying Benfleet, Essex.
Lovingly looked after and well maintained.
Overwintered on the hard and sail wardrobe stored in loft during the winter – no osmosis here!
