"Rio" was purchased by her present owner in October 2014. Her owner has spent a great deal of money on improving the boat including purchasing a new Honda 4 stroke electric start outboard in 2014, her standing rigging was renewed, a new VHF radio and wireless wind instrument and new Jib. She has been lifted ashore every year with annual rust protection to the keel, antifouling and polishing. She has been used for mostly day sailing on the River Blackwater and is described as a great little boat and a pleasure to sail!
NOTE - The owner does not have the original VAT invoice & documents for this boat, just his purchase receipt, she was originally supplied to Kiss Marine in the UK who have ceased trading, the 3 owners have all been private individuals so VAT was paid on purchase but you would not be able to take this boat overseas.
