Owners Comments

Before I bought her in 2002 Walrus had 2 owners, each for about 15 years. The last one was a RN helicopter engineer and hence the standard of maintenance and fitting of the equipment is excellent. Walrus has always been wintered ashore, covered up, with the mast off in a proper mast store. The 2002 survey is excellent.

Walrus is fun and easy to sail. She is very stable and predictable and ideal as a first boat. I have sailed her in a F6 and with two reefs in, storm jib up and combined with the substantial ballast she sails relatively flat and dry (and in fact is a very dry boat – no water at all accumulates in the bilges throughout the season).

The engine is absolutely reliable and powerful . Walrus will achieve up to about 6 Knots running and in a good breeze will go to windward at about 5 Knots. She is very manoeuvrable both under power and under sail. I am only selling to buy a bigger boat.
