    <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">From the board of Americas cup designer Warwick Collins, we are proud to present one of the limited edition&nbsp;light displacement fast blue water cruisers that set the way forward for fast passage making and easy sailing.&nbsp;</span></p>

    <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">Teak decks, tiller steering to semi-balanced rudder and the renowned&nbsp;Warwick Collins tandem wing keel. 'Sparkle III' is a bespoke 12m designed for the commissioning owner&nbsp;for two people to sail easily without leaving the cockpit. </span></p>
    <p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">From the same stable as the likes of 'Flying Boat', 'Fighter' and 'Fondue', 'Sparkle III' has the same hull ratios re, length and beam to cut through the water effortlessly whilst enjoying the magnificent attributes of the keel which gives the feeling of a much larger, sea kindly boat with regard to stability and motion not usually found in a shallow draft yacht. A truly impressive blue water cruiser.</span></p>

    <h3>GENERAL COMMENTS</h3>
    <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Tandem 39 sloop in West system strip plank cedar, teak decks and featuring the Warwick Collins Tandem wing keel. A truer composite hull. </span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">This keel type is noted to have a lower centre of gravity, better directional stability and damping of pitching and rolling. </span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Well equipped and maintained to a high standard with upgrading by her present owners. A viable alternative to a GRP yacht with the&nbsp;enhanced&nbsp;warmth and insulation of the wooden hull and interior encapsulated by robust GRP. </span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">2010 survey available. Viewing recommended</span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p>
    <h3>OWNERS COMMENTS/SERVICE HISTORY</h3>
    <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;"><strong>Sparkle III</strong> has been out of the water for normal annual maintenance every winter since we bought her.&nbsp; In addition, we have carried out the following improvements:</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;"><strong>2011</strong></span></p> <ul> <li><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Fitted new Lavac toilet and new hoses</span></li> <li><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Fitted Ventilator in forehatch</span></li> </ul> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;"><strong>2012</strong></span></p> <ul> <li><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Fitted New Jackstays</span></li> </ul> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;"><strong>2013</strong></span></p> <ul> <li><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Fitted active radar reflector (Echomax Active xs dual band)</span></li> <li><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Fitted Sterling alternator control unit</span></li> <li><span style="font-size: 12pt;">New P bracket cutlass bearing and new bearing for shaft seal</span></li> <li><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Liferaft serviced</span></li> </ul> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;"><strong>2014</strong></span></p> <ul> <li><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Standing rigging replaced</span></li> <li><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Fitted new main halyard in 12mm Dyneema and new topping lift in 10mm braid on braid</span></li> <li><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Fitted new Maxwell HRCFF8 windlass with 60 metres 8mm cable and 50 mtres 14mm 8 strand white nylon anchor braid multiplait (All new)</span></li> <li><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Purchased new storm jib in orange (virtually unused)</span></li> <li><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Autoprop rebuilt by Bruntons</span></li> <li><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Fitted new Aquasignal LED tricolour with new mast wiring</span></li> </ul> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">&nbsp;OBSERVATIONS.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Sparkle was built in 1990 and, prior to our purchase in 2010, had two previous owners. The first owner, had her built and kept her until about 2000.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;"> During this period Sparkle did an Atlantic circuit and then sailed in the Med before being brought back to the UK for sale. </span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">The second owner, kept her from about 2000 until he sold to us in 2010 and during this period she sailed back to The Med and then, latterly, in Dutch waters. </span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">I mention this history because two experienced owners keeping a boat for 10 years is a testament to her good manners and purposefulness.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;"> Both were previously keen dinghy sailors which is one reason why Sparkle has tiller steering with the hoop and tiller extension at the working end of the tiller. In benign conditions the helmsman can sit out on the coaming and steer using the extension. In bad weather the helmsman can steer in the shelter of the sprayhood.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">We have sailed Sparkle in all sorts of weather in the North Sea, the English Channel, Biscay, the Irish Sea and off the West Coast. </span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">In a blow the helm is firm but manageable. One experience worth mentioning is from the trip back from Holland in 2010. We sheltered from a gale for a day in Brighton Marina. By lunchtime on the following day the SW wind had moderated somewhat and we set sail for Portsmouth under staysail and main with two reefs. Bear in mind that we were relatively inexperienced with the boat at this point. We were beating into a rough sea with a steady 30 knots of wind gusting to 38 knots across the deck. The helm remained comfortably balaned &amp; manageable throughout. A friend who was with us and who was himself a boat owner of some experience commented that she was “the most reassuring boat he’d ever sailed on”.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">&nbsp;Sparkle III is the fifth cruising boat I have owned. Two of the others were tiller steered, namely a Contessa 32 and a Victoria 34. The original Tandem 38 was designed for an owner who wanted dimensions and loads similar to his previous boat, a Sadler 34. See the article from Yachting Monthly October 1988 which explains the design’s genesis, Fondue, the Tandem 38 tested.</span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p>
