A wealthy retired hotelier pal of mine bought a beautiful 1997 Sabreline 36 Express Cruiser Power New and Used Boats for Sale from Pete Townsend.

He didn't have a 'scooby' about boats, his brief was 'comfy fishing boat'. I basically skippered it for a season for him until he 'learnt the ropes'. He said that his Wife never got over the urge to hide in the loo when ever he left or returned to berth.

With twin 300 CATS on shafts and little windage, it was a dream to handle, close quarter.

'Five Fifteen' eventually went to Holland.

Luckily, while his wife was hiding in the bog, CHARLIE was there to help with the mooring-up.

As you know, Nige spent a few days 'residing'on the boat after passing comment on dear Charlie's berthing assist. "YOU USELESS TWAT!"

RIBase
Salterns is a tight marina to get a 56' boat out of and back into if you're not experienced.

But, you might be better 'qualified' than the owner's alternatives. I'd have a read of the insurance details also.

Agreed, 56' is a big barge, but with twins and thrusters, it might be a pussy cat. Wind would be my concern with a 3 storey MY.

I am almost certain that there was a scenario like this in the PPR course and I think it said that the boat does not need to be coded as it is a pleasure voyage but the skipper DOES need a ticket IF paid more than expenses......Doug are you there?

I have a friend in Poole that is on two weeks on two weeks off who could give you a bit of guidance if you are interested. He has Ocean YM Power, Deep Sea Masters and normally drives a 42 metre high speed craft around Europe.

He is an A1 ship & boat handler!

PM me if interested.

Thanks all. It is an easy boat to manage, and think as it's under 24m I would be fine. It is not coded but is Defo a private boat.

Plans have been made, but I know I'll have more fun and smiles in my own little rib tomorrow.
