Columbus – Fisher 34 Mark III Sloop – Chichester
Northshore Built – Hull No. 107 – September 1999
I’ve owned Columbus for some 3 years and she’s proved to be a very capable and seaworthy yacht. I’m committed to continued ownership but due to some other priorities now wish to share this with one or possibly two like-minded co-owners (i.e. 50% or 33% shares).
The boat is in excellent condition, equipped to a very high standard, easily single-handed, and has a Mark II interior layout which many prefer. Furling genoa and in-mast furling mainsail. Highly reliable Perkins-Sabre M65 engine with just 1050 hours. ZF Hurth hydraulic gearbox. Darglow Featherstream feathering prop (2016). Side-Power bow thruster.
Many recent upgrades include:
2018: new cooker, new running rigging, new inflatable & outboard
2019: new standing rigging, new liferaft and cradle, complete new Raymarine electronics suite, new TV and Bluetooth radio installed, all lights converted to LED (mast, navigation, internal), new EPIRB
2020: new genoa and mainsail, new domestic and engine batteries
