    Remarks :
    If you enjoy coastal sailing at weekends and occasional short holidays throughout the season then this Cobra 850 could be the sailboat for you. She benefits from a full renovation and is ready to sail away. Everything works and many of the features are whet you would expect in a higher end modern cruiser. The boat is clean and comfortable both above and below deck. She sails well and is easy to handle single handed. She's perfect for 2 and easily capable of accommodating 3 or 4.

    What The Owner Says

    I can account for roughly the past 15 years of her 35 years service, most of which has been spent in a boatyard or inside a workshop. In other words, she’s only been on the water for 3 of the last 15 years! So I’m not sure those years really qualify as ‘service’. I bought her in 2012 from the Proprietor of a North West boatyard where she had sat for the previous 10 years (or so). She had been stored in a workshop (out of the weather) for most of this time undergoing renovation. Consequently, she really does not look her age! I bought her as a work-in-progress and she remained in-situ during the refit under my ownership until launch in 2014. I commissioned a survey prior to purchase, the subsequent report stated that no problems were found and commented on the high quality work done so far. The survey is available upon request. In the spring of 2014 I sailed her to North Wales, berthing her at Holyhead marina during the season and ashore during the winter. Upgrades and improvements have continued throughout my ownership. I now mainly sail her around the very scenic Anglesey and North Wales coastline. However, these are very tidal waters and I take safety and reliability very seriously, as such she is ‘loved’ and maintained to a high standard and has proven to be a very reliable boat. I’ve had great fun and have many fond memories of my adventures in her.
