Tuqa is a Peter Ibold-designed Endurance 35 blue water cutter-rigged sloop and one of the true classic blue water designs of some note. Tuqa has been a greatly loved liveaboard and has enjoyed the Solent for the past five years. She was built in Vancouver, Canada by De Kleer in 1976 to a good standard and one of the few GRP hulls with the simulated planking topsides. Her full keel and cutter rig makes her a predictable and reliable passage-maker in both comfort and safety. Tuqa has had a survey for insurance purposes in 2018 which is available on request.
If you would like to view Tuqa, please give Nick a call on +44 7900 191 326. He will arrange to collect you from any of the Island's ferry terminals (just 20 mins from the mainland) and whizz you out to see her.
