Just returning from Thailand, after a BIG refit, Fretless is FOR SALE.
She has recently had NEW Sails, new rigging, a totally over hauled engine, new exterior and interior paint work, and antifouling. Along with new wiring, lifelines, anchor, AND MORE! So she is ready to go!
If you are in the market for a small, strong, performance monohull, she is definitely worth your attention. She is tidy, with tiller steering, a roomy cockpit, and a hard top bimini.
Her head room inside is 5 ft 10, so for a small boat, she still provides many people with an ability to walk and live with out stooping. She has a Vberth, and 2 single aft cabins, as well
a drop down dining table that converts into a double bed.
It has everything needed to go sailing. Its a simple system.
She has plumbing for a new Head, but the current owner had converted that space into an organised storage area. He uses a simple bucket and "mandi" system for showering in the cockpit. And there is also room for an Engle stand alone fridge unit if desired.
Fretless is a classic designed Australian boat, built for world cruising.
She is already based in one of the most beautiful world cruising destinations, the stunning Langkawi Islands. A beautiful safe place to get to know your yacht, you can then adventure further, up the west coast of Thailand, and later across the Indian Ocean to Africa, or the Malacca Straits to Indonesia.
