#boatsforsale – Looking for a great performer for club racing or a chance to join the growing Quarter Ton Fleet in time for the European Championships in Ireland 2013?

€13,750 gets you the professionally refitted Quarter Tonner Supernova that has an impressive list of victories including the 'Boat of the Week' title at the 2011 Volvo Dun Laoghaire Week. The boat is also a frequent top performer in Dublin Bay Sailing Club (DBSC) leagues. The boat has been dry sailed over the last five years and wintered indoors.

It's not the first competitive quarter tonner to come on the market in recent times either. Last year Kinsale's Ian Travers sold his similarly well priced top performing 'Bandit' after posting it on the Afloat Boats for Sale site.

#BOATS FOR SALE – A 2005 version of an Aquador 28 sports cruiser is on the market through Fitzgerald Marine of Kinsale in Co. Cork.  This Finnish made boat is a popular model in Ireland thanks to the pionneering efforts of distributors MGM Boats who showed off the boats suitability of the robust hull to rough Irish waters when they first imported the Scandinavian craft more than a decade ago.

The Fitzgerald marine boat at €99,000 is less than half the price of a new boat. The 28 is the largest hard top boat in the Aquador range and a bigger example of the 26 Hard Top. Aquador always make a big play about the feeling of space  below deck and while this is true it is the practicality of the all weather hard top, the proven hull and wide walk-around decks that makes the Aquador 28 so safe for family use and thus so appealing for Irish boaters.

#BOATS FOR SALE – Under the heading 'Boat (still) For Sale' the owner of the Beneteau Oceanis 411 'La Chacharoona' 'has had a few nibbles from his advert on the Afloat boats for sale site but alas so far no bites.

'Plan B' for the owner is to offer a quarter share in the vessel because he has 'less time than originally planned to visit her'. The hope is cruising sailors fed up with Irish weather will see this as a wonderful opportunity to buy in to Med cruising. She is based in MDL Marina's new facility in Sant Carles de la Rapita on the east coast, where berthing and maintenance fees compare favourably with Irish rates.

All the details and photos of La Chacharoona are here.
