The distinctive black hulled Dublin Bay-based Quarter Tonner Cartoon is for sale. 

Priced at €15,000, the 1986 vintage Fauroux design is described as one of the fastest quarter tonners, especially in light airs.

Built in Antibes using divinycell core technology rather than balsa core. Fauroux's designs are consistently seen at the top of the UK Quarter Ton Fleet.

The boat was optimised for IRC in 2015 by removing the original IOR rig. 

Optimisation included a new Selden mast, boom, standing rigging, running rigging, Jeffa rudder tube, composite rudder and carbon tiller.

The boat has continuously dry sailed since 2013 and sails from the Royal Irish Yacht Club, and comes complete with a road trailer.
