The Little Ship Company
DROPPED $10k !!!!
Finally what you have been looking for?
From the design desk of the respected Ron Holland, and well loved and cared for by her capable British cruising liveaboard owners, Pepper represents excellent value for money and the logical choice for the knowledgeable Yachtsman or Yachtswoman looking for a capable offshore cruiser that is ready to GO!
ICW friendly and with a Coppercoat bottom, she is predictable and surefooted in confused seas, steady on a beam reach or a quartering sea and you will love her downwind manners!
Pepper is a superb family, cruiser racer sailing yacht .She is fully equipped and ready for sailing local Carribean waters as well as complete ocean crossings and should the feeling arise.. a circumnavigation.
Hand laid up and solidly built with beautiful lines she has a light, spacious and airy living area.
Pepper is safe, fast and comfortable under sail and motor.
Often mistaken for a Swan, she is a real head turner, much admired in anchorages and under full sail.
She is set up for short-handed sailing, CAN BE QUITE EASILY SINGLE HANDED, and has the distinction of being the first double-handed yacht to complete the ARC+ 2016. No mean feat! She is capable of attaining regular cruising speeds of 7 to 8 kts.
She is equipped to be self-sustaining with ample power generation capabilities and her dual auto helm systems, along with an Aries wind vane, provides peace of mind for ocean passages. Equipped with SSB and VHF radio, radar, AIS, mantus anchor, in-date 4 man life raft, EPIRB, hydranet sails, water maker, bow thruster, generator, 2x340 watt solar panels amongst others.
She was extensively re-fitted before she crossed the Atlantic in 2016 when she had the standing rigging replaced as well, and has since undergone further work when she was repainted, re-varnished and decks refurbished (along with lots of other work): she is ready in all respects to continue her adventures.
