3.8 to 4.2 sib

I am looking to up grade to a larger sib. I have the outboard etc.. it is unfortunately cost related so i may not be able to afford one at this present time but it doesnt hurt to ask

3.6m and very large tubes, mine has a bladder tank so loads of room, it has an air keel and a 1" thick deck on top that is bolted down into place and tensioned with large steel bars. On top of the deck it has a 3" shock mitigation flooring

It also benefits from having two trunks and compass holder as well as a large anchor box and four pockets.

It's just awesome, has to be one of the best sibs out there

Y class...pah !...get a bombard 380 ...a tad cheaper & lighter and still good for 20knts with a 15 on the back

Cant wait to race the Y in SIB club with the 380 ...but I have a 25.....

Seriously - I picked mine up for £450 in January a year or tow ago off ebay ....just have to look every day. And dont worry if its South coast ...SIB club can arrange anything !

i`m watching `the bay` every day ,theres a europa on at the moment but the price tag is too high for me i asked if he`d seperate trailer from boat and encountered a ..no
i have a 3m velocity marine generic chinese import at the moment, which is of an excellent quality but i want the bigger boat as it`s something of an addiction...unfortunately the re-sale value of my boat would be small

it`s good to know sibclub has my back on the south coast..i will deffo make a sibfest this year even if its in the generic
