Shelagh Maintenance/improvments history


She - Delta 94 – Built 1979/80, currently laying ashore Hamble Point Marina, lifted ashore 19th June 2017.

Extensive work completed over the last 14 years, she really is a unique boat!

This "She Delta" has been maintained, regardless of cost, by one of the best professionals in the marine industry. She has spent the last two winters undercover in workshops at Hamble Point Marina , and has been continually updated over the last 6 years.

She has been owned by her current owner for 8 years (who owns an established yacht service/maintenance company).The current owner had also done considerable work on this boat for the boats previous owner in. 2004-5

Much of the work done on this boat has been to update and improve her - there is a lot of history coming up, but if this is your type of boat. it is certainly worth reading all of it!

The original rudder and skeg were removed and a brand new balanced rudder and small skeg fitted further aft, this is fitted with a Jeffa roller bearing system, she is now "fingertip light, tacks smoothly and keeps her speed on during the tack", faster all round, It also makes her much nicer to sail,(no more hanging on to the helm with two hands!). The old swan neck tiller took up too much room in the cockpit, the new tiller is higher and you can now sit people in the cockpit and steer!!

Keel stripped to bare metal, filled, faired and re coated.

The smaller table is big enough for two to eat off and makes it easier to walk past it to go to fwd to the heads/forward cabin, and it looks great.

Owners comments

"She is a purists boat and can out sail most boats of her size, she came second in the 2016 Hamble Classic yacht regatta under IRC, she has a current IRC certificate, she rates 872." 

"We have just been to the S&S class association meeting in Lymington (organised by the current owner), she looked fantastic, we had a steady stream of people on and off the boat and everyone was blown away by the condition, I have spent a lot of time and money on her and she is in exceptional condition, it was not part of my plan to sell her, which is why all the work has been done. But a new boat has changed our plans, so we have to sell her."
