General Description

This Tradewind 25 with Gaff Cutter Rig can only be described in our opinion as being in exceptional condition for her age & can justifiably be described as a truly modern classic that will turn heads wherever she goes. The boat has a GRP hull that was built by Blondecell Marine of Marchwood, Southampton to a design by John Rock & it would appear no expense has been spared in its construction. A very attractive & charismatic boat with dark green hull & beautiful solid wood interior with accommodation for 3, separate galley & Heads, mean she ouzes classic charm. Full of home comforts including Eberspacher cabin heating, refrigerated cool box & 240v Shore Power mean this yacht is a pleasure to be aboard. Indeed her current Owner of 17 years has sailed numerous long passages on her, many single handed. She was fitted with a new Beta 25 diesel engine in 2015 and has a GPS, VHF & Navtex. This boat has to be seen to be appreciated & you will not be disappointed. She has been regularly serviced & has had a recent hull polish, & new anodes fitted. She is lying Southampton.

Brokers Comments

This Tradewind 25 Gaff Cutter is a boat that in our opinion is in excellent condition & has clearly been loved & cared for by a very knowledgeable Owner. She will really turn heads wherever she goes. With the style & lines of a traditional yacht but the advantages of a GRP hull, this boat has a very solid feel to her with a finish & quality that we believe will be hard to beat. With a S/S tabernacle & beautiful pine mast that can be lowered, this is a yacht that can take you to cruising grounds such as European canals that other yachts can’t make . Fitted with a new Beta 25 diesel engine in 2015 as well as many home comforts including Eberspacher heating, galley & separate heads with holding tank, as well as 240v Shore Power, this is a boat that will make you feel at home. Once you step aboard, it is clear to see that this boat has been finished to a very high specification & you can see the craftsmanship & engineering that went into finishing her. Once in the cabin, the solid wood cabinetry is complimented by soft furnishings giving a warm & welcoming feel. This definitely feels like boat that will be a pleasure to spend time aboard. She sits pretty in the water & has a very low freeboard amidships making her easy to board & disembark & once onboard the very generous headroom below gives the feeling of being much bigger than her size would suggest.

In our opinion, this Tradewind 25 is clearly a boat that has had a lot of love put into her by her current Owner of 17 years. She has recently been lifted and had a new coat of anti-foul applied and her hull polished & she is currently afloat in Southampton. Viewings can be arranged through Aspire Boat Sales.
