Hull fittings, the simple and sturdy rigging have aged very well and remain perfectly reliable.
Today, this boat is in a nearly-new condition thanks to the passion and experience of her owner, marine carpenter and knowledgeable sailor.
Given her age and the quality of refit, she could be rated "collection" condition.
In addition, the sails, standing and electronics and instruments were updated and make the boat a full offshore sailboat again.
Eventually, the safety gear updating and the remake of equipments such important as the stern tube warranty the peace of mind of the crew
for beautiful sailings.
