:( :( With a heavy heart I am going to have to list 2887 for sale, I bought her a few years ago to sail with my daughter. Unfortunately as she has grown older she has lost interest in sailing. As such she hasn't sailed this season which is a real shame.

The boat is in excellent general condition having been fully restored 2 years ago, as such she is ready to race and has all of the latest kit detailed below. The boat was stripped and revarnished in 2pot varnish and the hull painted in lilac (my daughters choice) all the ropes have been replaced and most of the blocks and cleats are harken or Ronstan. The mast and boom are brand new and been used a handful of times, its the latest Superspars M2 section which is used on the latest rooster boats and has the modified Gnav kicker system which allows for more crew space, the boat is also fitted with a carbon dangly pole. The sails are the new rules P&B laminate ODL06 main and dacron jib, these are a beautiful cut and although measured in 2011 have barely been used and as such are in excellent condition. Foils are in excellent condition and the boat has a stunning laminate rudder blade with cast alloy stock and carbon tiller. The top cover is the top of the range weathermax breathable fabric boom up type made by rain and sun. This is 12 months old but given the boat has spent 6 months in my garage its had hardly any use, i also have a very good undercover (i barely towed the boat anywhere so its hardly used but has shrunk slightly from lack of use). The boat has been properly converted to inboard sheeting as per the newer rooster boats set up, this is far superior to some of the block and tackle systems and means the jib can be cleated by a child or by the helm properly! I spent months designing this system to work (stealing ideas from other boats) and its proved very good!

The boat has a galvanised combi unit which benefits from brand new trolley wheels and new hubs and bearings on the road base.

The boat is blisteringly fast and has won several club trophies, i will be sad to see it go, but cant justify it sitting in a dinghy park not being used.

I would like £1750 but would consider close offers as long as the new owner promises to sail her! Annoyingly she is probably worth more in parts!!!

Now reduced to £1250
