Polibre my cherished boat is for sale due to larger boat on its way.

When I bought her approx 9 years ago I looked at a lot of 31mk11's and she was the standout favourite with her overall condition being excellent, her interior teak woodwork was by far the best I could find and is lovely and light and in good condition.

Through my ownership and as an ex Chief Engineer I have done my best to keep her that way.

She is out of the water laid up ashore on her yard trailer for at least 6 months of the year and in season she is moored in Barrow in Furness in Cumbria and cruises the local area, she has just come back from a great trip to the Isle of Man and is in the water ready to go on her next adventure, needing nothing done to sail her away anywhere.

She was the 1987 London boat show model so she comes with a few extras over normal like extra opening hatch in the saloon and teak grating to the cockpit.

She has lots of extras and I will try to list all of them, but basically she wants for nothing to enable her to go off on her next adventure.

The maintenance is all done by me during her long winter lay ups and the engine was serviced before relaunch this year.

Her previous owner was very fastidious with her up keep and has kept every bit of paperwork to do with her and I have endeavoured to do the same, I have every manual and receipt you could ever wish for
