We have owned “Pisces IV” for 11 years now with 2 previous owners.
She has spent all her winters (Nov – April) ashore on her trailer so the hull is in very good condition with low moisture readings. Most of her sailing has been on Rutland Water, River Avon and Tewkesbury, with occasional trailed holidays to Southampton, Norfolk Broads and Plymouth.
I have maintained a regular service schedule on her annually, and every 3 years she has gone back to her builder for a superior service. In 2015 they carried out internal refurbishments to the cabin and she has not been used since.
We have found “Pisces” to be a great fun boat much admired by everyone, and safe and stable on the water, easily sailed single handed with all lines led back to the cockpit. She will be sadly her missed, but other commitments means we don’t have the time to use her as often as we’d like, hence the reason for the sale.
