“Kerygma” is described by her owner as being a great boat for the East Coast, fast and safe, sails like a dinghy but with the space of a cruiser. Her last professional survey was in Spring 2015. Her owner has purchased new electronics and has fitted new windows 2015, also extra portlights fitted, stanchions, genoa track, pullies and clutches have all been replaced in 2015. A much loved boat that has only done coastal sailing and lightly used. She is as happy up a shallow creek as she is powering upwind in a race.
