Jackalope is up for sale because I want to move up to a larger vessel. She is in great condition for her year and benefits from a Volvo D1-20 fitted in 2009. Jackalope is used very regularly for single handed weekend trips in the North Sea and occasionally Calais and the engine is an essential comfort and saftey issue when the current is strong. The engine has done approximately 850 hours. Sails are in good condition, the Genoa is 10 years old but has been only recently purchased with light use. Jackalope is known in the club for good performance and a higher build quality than most boats.
