About this Robert Clark 72 Ketch

Remarks : This Robert Clark 72 foot Ketch Cutter has had extensive wok done and her refit is 90% done.  It is a great opportunity to acquire a classic yacht with excellent business or live aboard potential.  There is the possibility to reclaim VAT on the purchase price subject to the circumstances. 'Renaissance' started her life as 'Scott Bader Commonwealth' as she was named after a company sponsor and was built by and for the Ocean Youth Club as a sail training vessel.  In 1991 she was bought by the Faramir Trust who also used her as a sailing training vessel for under privileged children.  She underwent an extensive refit at that time. The Faramir Trust and The Sailing Trust combined in 2002 and she was incorporated into the Cirdan Fleet.  'Renaissance' has been well maintained by the Trust who have given her a thorough annual refit/maintenance to keep her up to standard. Her current owners bought her in 2006 and stripped out all but the bulkheads and structural assemblies.  Her hull was ground off from boot top down, re-laminated with 'Wests' epoxy system giving her 4 layups of woven rovings.  She has a new bow thruster, new plumbing for radiators, heating, shower and hot and cold pressurised water.  Re-wired throughout and old systems replaced.  Alternator overhauled.   The following things still need doing: Forward cabin - either bunks or en-suite to master cabin Hanging room - second heads Finish galley - install cooking facility (at present 2 ring origo) Re-gas and run up freezer motor Fit new floor - current boards are old and do not match Accommodation : Main Saloon - L shaped seating area to starboard, L shaped seating area with dining table and bench seat to port which converts to double bunk Chart Table Galley Fridge/freezer Storage Bunks 2 x double bunks 6 x single bunks There is scope to add more bunks Heads Toilet A second heads compartment can be added Shower Compartment Engine Room Boiler Room Inventory : Winches Lewmar 3 speed 650 centrally mounted headsail sheet winch Harken 56s/tail - staysail Lewmar 650 3 speed main sheets double end x 2 Lewmar 550 3 speed running backstays x 2 Lewmar 46 mainsail halyard Lewmar 46 jib halyard Lewmar 30 staysail halyard Deck Equipment 125lb CQR anchor with galvanised chain 75lb CQR kedge anchor Simpson Lawrence electric windlass Fenders and warps 22 x alloy cleats Storage locker 10 x deck lights Boathook Stainless steel pulpit, stanchions with gates port and starboard and stanchion bases Stainless steel chain stopper, staysail sheet horse, main crutch boom, binnacle grab handle, aft sampson post and stern guard with teak outboard stowage bracket and seat Bronze roller fairleads fore and aft with alloy midships Teak cockpit seat slates and cockpit gratings Barnished teak lazarette hatch, cockpit coamings, sheet winch pedestal, dorado box, doghouse hatch, deckhouse hatch, handrails, liferaft and dinghy chocks Safety Equipment 4 x lifebuoys Danbuoy Webbing jackstays Foghorn Radar reflector Automatic and manual bilge pumps driven by solenoid and engine 8 x fire extinguishers Fire blanket Fire Trace remote control extinguisher system in generator room Navigation Equipment Nav 4 Plus Navtex Garmin 145 GPS Raymarine ST40 echo sounder, log, speed, wind speed, wind direction - 2001 with repeaters in cockpit RaymarineVHF R/T Raymarine R180 radar interfaced with GPS for dual screen - 2003 Sestral binnacle compass Systems Hot and cold pressurised water system New calorifier in 90 litre tank with immersion heater Mikuni MV9 Hydro 9 diesel boiler serving central heating and water Mechanical and Rigging : Four cylinder Ford MD40 diesel engine  Fresh water heat exchanger for cooling Single lever controls Direct shaft drive to three blade fixed pitch propeller through a hydraulic reduction gearbox with reverse Bowthruster - side power 200kg with remote, batteries forward.
