This boat is in 1st class condition and I have no qualms about sailing her anywhere in the world. She is a proven design by Laurent Giles and is described as the best small ocean cruiser of all time. Many have gone round the world and dozens have crossed the Atlantic. She is a fabulous sailer and will power with ease into any wind and sea condition. She heaves to easily and quietly, is light on the helm and in a force 4/5 she will clear 6 knots going to windward.




These Vertues are very highly-rated pocket ocean crossers. Anne of the Isles is in great shape after her refit by her thorough and experienced owner. Only advancing years and ill-health have prevented the owner fulfilling the plans he had for her.
