'Blue Moon' is a well presented SHE 9.5 Traveller built by South Hants Marine Engineering to a design by Sparkman and Stephens. She has 2 Genoa Jibs on roller reefing and the main is 5 to 6 years old with slab reefing and has had little use. Her sails boast a Spinnaker and a Big Boy Ghoster. Blue Moon includes a Sprayhood, Dodger lines and Fenders. All the rigging was renewed 4 or 5 years ago and has a new and modern boom which is unused, supplied and professionally fitted with standard rigging. Both a Plough and a Bruce anchor are included with the boat along with chain. Blue Moon hasn't been used for three years; she's been sitting on a cradle which is also included with the boat. Having been in the same ownership for 28 years Blue Moon has been spectacularly looked after, a remarkable sailor and at this price is a fantastic option for anyone considering a sailboat.
