Boat Description

Full specification
Laurent Giles Columbia Class sloop designed by Laurent Giles as an affordable, capable and easily handled cruising boat.
The design has a reverse sheer to increase internal space, deep self draining cockpit, and water tight bulkheads fore and aft which act as dry stowage space but also as collision bulkheads. She is a mini blue water cruising yacht and far more capable then her dimensions suggest.
Bought by the present owner from the chap who built her. She requires a small amount of work including a cosmetic tidy up to make her ready for the summer, but she appears to be structurally sound.
Also available for purchase by separate negotiation is a very good quality single axle road trailer that fits the boat very nicely, making her a very cost effective way of getting afloat this summer.
Length 206
Beam 65
Draft 45
