Description

‘Crescent Moon’ is a bilge keel boat built by Marine Construction (Marcon) in the mid 1970s to the Alan Hill design. Length 7.25m, LWL 6.1m, Beam 2.59m, Draft .91, Hull certificate 1975, Last survey June 2007.

She offers up to five berths in two cabin, has a separate heads and a small galley. So a little broader on the beam and shallower on the draft made her ideal for sailing in Clem Bay.  She has been laid up in doors for three years. The hull has been fully painted and is in good condition.   All of the internal furnishing had been taken out at the outset and are stored in a dry shelved area.

The engine is a Yanmar 1GM10 9hp and has not been serviced since she motored to the lift out point at Westport Quay three seasons ago.

The rigging is in good condition and she had been fitted with a Rotostay Reefkit that worked well on the water. However the mast foot is damaged and will need replacing. She has a full set of sails including a cruising spinnaker that is easy to launch and to manage. Crescent Moon comes with anchor, some additional rope and plenty of fenders.

The Crescent Moon comes with a Zodiac Zoom 310S (10’2”) that the owner found too big for tow or transport but which will serve you well getting in an out to a fixed offshore mooring. It has all the necessary fittings, oars and floorboards but does need a slow puncture to be located and repaired.

We had a great time with this boat sailing around Clew Bay and the adjacent islands. She points well and was a reliable and safe vessel in several heavy weather trips. She originally came from the UK through France and we are told performed well in open water.‘Crescent Moon’ is a bilge keel boat built by Marine Construction (Marcon) in the mid 1970s to the Alan Hill design.

Most sailing cruisers on Irish waters are in the six to ten metre category and offer the protection of a cabin for over nighting and the Irish climate.
