Queen B of Arne is an excellently-maintained, pretty example of this popular, classic, seaworthy yacht. She was built in 1977-8 by Jeremy Rogers under LLoyds and has had only three owners.

She has been used for light summer cruising in the West Country, Channel Islands and Southern Ireland, and stored ashore for at least 6 months every year.

The current owners carried out extensive upgrading and renewal over the winter of 2020-2021, including all new: standing and running rigging; Seldon boom; stack-pack, lazy-jacks and cockpit reefing system; set of new sails; two Harken self-tailing winches; new mainsheet block and traveller; two Axiom chart-plotters with Navionics charts; new Raymarine 63 VHF radio; depth sounder; wind instrument; electric re-wiring and LED upgrading; Rutland 1200 wind turbine; rudder rebuild; new stem-head fitting and bow roller; engine serviced and exhaust system replaced.

The woodwork is all teak in satin finish varnish throughout.

Her Mylor Harbour swinging mooring could be available.
