The owners rapidly growing family and opportunities for a larger boatinthe current economic climatehave inspired an interest to sell Ragdoll.Condition:

Excellent for the year. Ragdoll is regularly cleaned and waxed. The hull has been compounded to a high gloss and waxed on a regular basis. The boot top is maintained in a painted Smoke Grey.

The underwater hull has been previously epoxy treated for the prevention of osmosis in 2007, and maintained since every year with Hempel Cruising Performer, Dove White.

There are no contrary indications below the waterline. The hull to keel joint is in excellent condition under a bed of 3M 4200 sealant. Keel Bolts are in visibly excellent condition with a generally clean and dry bilge. Ragdoll has maintained herself in a dry condition. The design of the hull to keep joint, and various details of the deck have maintained her in a dry condition. The current owner has paid careful attention to ensuring fittings are removed and re-sealed on an ongoing basis. A survey is available from 2016 during purchase. Many, Many of the observations from the survey have been carefully addressed, with ongoing maintenance where required. Where required, some cosmetic items are on the owners ongoing maintenance list.

Some varnishing in the saloon is next on the owners hit list.
