A note from the current owners: The arrival of a sailing boat causes us to need to part with much loved Cool Beans. Renowned for their seaworthiness; this boat is safe, sturdy and versatile – she’s looked after us well. We bought her in late spring 2019, have refurbished her since and have had great adventures, holidays and memories already. Including: a trip over to Eigg from Roshven for a couple of nights at anchor, around Loch Ailort and ‘paradise beach’, Fishing, and seeing Dolphin, Minke Whale, Porpoise, Bioluminescence. We’ve also slept on her for several nights in a row while exploring idyllic bays and anchorages out from Largs where we keep her on dry-berthing (which we found to be a brilliant arrangement). Cool Beans even served as the best ‘remote working from home’ location I’ve had yet – each meeting via zoom caused great conversation :) Including hosting a webinar with panelists from around the world while moored just off Great Cumbrae! If you’re looking for an affordable, great condition, safe boat for fishing, family, coastal exploring and Lochs – then you should enjoy Cool Beans as much as we have.
