950.00 £ N3465 - a restoration project [sold]

This is N3465 Crouching Tiger, purchased by my late Dad in 2020 with the aim to restore it (gel coat was flaking off in places on the hull, and there was some gouges from collisions!). It passed on to me to finish the work, but unfortunately have not been able to do so, due lack of availability.


So far, the spots where the finish was damaged has been sanded back and filled, as shown in the photos. There was quite a large area on the transom end that needed this!


As per the notes left to me by Dad, it still requires a light re-sand to smooth out any remaining spots, followed by a new paint application over the entirety. There's also a few spots of anti-slip on the deck that is peeling and wants some work.


The majority of fittings it was bought with remain in place. To aid restoration work, some were removed: attachment points on the gunwhales for mast shrouds (I believe), a metal strip on the bow, as well as the bow attachment point for the jib.


The hatch covers for the bouyancy tanks are currently AWOL somewhere in the garage.


I am selling with the following:



  • 2x sail sets (see photos album below ↓)

  • Mast (fairly sure this is a white super spar carbon, but not certain)

  • Carbon boom

  • Road base trailer (does not appear to have the support for mast, see photos album ↓)

  • Trolley

  • 1x Hempel Off White epoxy primer

  • 1x Hempel Pure White polygloss topcoat

  • Top cover

  • Rudder


Please be aware N3465 is not currently in a sailable condition, and will definitely require work!
