Windcatcher was purchased as a new yacht by FlexiSail for the Lymington Fleet mid 2017 since when she has had a small and exclusive group off members sailing her regularly, treating her as their own.  She is available for sale with a 3 year agreement to keep her in FlexiSail for that period, after which the new owner may decide to sail into the sunset, or request an extension within FlexiSail which will be possible by mutual agreement. Windcatcher represents a fantastic ownership opportunity with a guaranteed income for the next 3 years and all running costs paid by FlexiSail. Our included ownership care package will save you approximately £30,000 per annum!  This includes all maintenance, repairs, renewals, cleaning, management, marina berthing at Lymington Yacht Haven, insurance, and of course a guaranteed income paid monthly.  She comes with free sailing throughout the year in excess of the equivalent of 6 weeks a year. If you want even greater access you can take less income (less potential tax to pay!) and add more usage.

Windcatcher is the exceptionally desirable lifting keel version which adds so much to the flexibility and versatility to where and when you visit the many beautiful locations around the South Coast. This versatility comes without any noticeable effect on the sailing performance.

Windcatcher Gallery

You will find Windcatcher very well specified, including a bow thruster, teak cockpit,  and on board heating for all year round sailing. She is commercially ‘coded’ carrying around £12,000 of kit much of which you would not find on a private yacht. As for her condition, you will find her every bit as good as the best private examples around. If you are vat registered she is VAT recoverable bring the net cost down to £111,625

If you are interested to find out more please call the office on 01590 688008 and speak to me, Richard Pierpoint, and we can arrange for you to visit the boat or have a video tour.
