“Lasgair” is a fine example of a Whitby 42 / Brewer 420, the widely renowned and well proven Blue Water Cruiser. |
She was the second Brewer designed hull to come out of the experienced builder; Fort Myers Yacht and Ship and was built to the high Brewer 12.8 specifications but retaining the ketch rig and semi-full keel of the Whitby 42.
She has benefited from a huge number of comfort, safety and blue water upgrades recently in preparation for a Pacific crossing which has sadly been postponed due to parental illness.
All New chain plates, new forestay and re-swaged back stays, new roller furler and foils (all 2018), new Tohatsu 9.8 outboard (2018) and Caribe C10X tender (2017), gearbox completely rebuilt (2019), fuel and gas lines replaced (2019), New Hydraulic hoses (2018), New (hospital grade) water proof closed cell foam mattresses with waterproof covers in both cabins. (2018), New premium quality AGM batteries, 400w of solar with new MPPT controller (all 2018), new Victron charger/inverter (2017), dual function Victron battery monitor (2018) and much more.
The practical and much coveted twin head sail / bowsprit option greatly improves her sailing performance and is complemented by her beautiful dark navy Awgrip paint job.
Her sea kindly hull and low load rigging design combined with a keel stepped mast and hugely versatile sail plan means we have always been comfortable and confident in blue water.
We have held 8.5knts (max 9.5knts) in a boisterous passage from Guadaloupe to Martinique and felt completely comfortable.
Equally she has good light air credentials too, and we have enjoyed ghosting along at 4 knts in 8 knts of breeze, holding 3rd place in the fleet in a regatta in Bocas del Toro.
Her classic good looks accurately reflect her fantastic sailing design.
Currently lying in the beautiful cruising grounds of Bocas del Toro.
I am available for viewings and test sails in Bocas del Toro or Shelter Bay, Panama.
Happy to consider delivery Eastern Caribbean/Florida after the purchase if required.
