Queen B is a well-maintained, pretty example of this popular, classic, seaworthy yacht. She was built in 1979 by Jeremy Rogers under Lloyds and has been under her second ownership for over 20 years.
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 have carried out much replacement and renewal.
Due to retirement from sailing all onboard spares and equipment is included.
Engine overhauled with a new stern gland and water lubricated seal
Her original engine was renewed with a Yanmah 2GM20
The woodwork is all teak in satin finish varnish throughout.
Her Mylor Yacht Harbour swinging mooring could be available.
