Description: Clipper clipper 38
Clipper flybridge cruiser.
BACK ON THE MARKET... For a genuine reason. The recent buyer was looking mostly for a place to live... After owning the boat for a short few weeks, a life long back injury has re emerged to where he is too incapacitated to use the boat.


Serato has just been slipped /antifouled and prop speeded
I have checked the bottom for blisters, and the hull is in very good condition
Starboard Skeg bearing have just been replaced so nil movement in that one. Port bearing showing minimal movement, so lots of life left on the port side gear. Both props in very good condition
Both Prop shaft stuffing boxes have been serviced and re packed.
The rudders have been increased in size, to make this a more responsive vessel at sea. Those who are familiar with these boats will know that this makes a big difference to the comfort level in following conditions. Also much better manoeuvring when berthing.

FULL KEEL WITH RUNNING GEAR PROTECTED.

Around 10 years ago the two engines were removed and upgraded. The old steel tanks were removed and two new stainless tanks were fitted with a total capacity of 1400 litres. That's a big and important job out of the way

The engines are original and have only done circa 3000 hours since the original install. The vessel is was owned by a diesel mechanic prior to its recent sale, and it is obvious that the engine room maintenance has been kept up to date.
Recent works include removal of the heat ex changers for servicing. Removal and servicing of the sea water pumps.
Upgrading of the engine plumbing.
Recent fitting of both house and cranking batteries. Upgrading of the battery monitoring and charging system.
The bilges are clean and the engine bay is in clean and painted condition.

The interior is in good condition for a vessel of this age with the teak still in presentable and usable condition.

The teak decks have had work done to them, and are in serviceable condition.
Bronze opening port holes in good condition
Venetian blinds fitted in the saloon.

Starboard opening door at the helm position for easier berthing.
Hydraulic steering ram removed and serviced by Gateway Hydraulics

There is a massively constructed set of custom alloy davits to handle the alloy tender. They are constructed so the tender is high enough to see under when at anchor or manoeuvring in a marina. This is a great system and tender set up for those who enjoy their fishing and crabbing.
15 HP two stroke outboard on an 11 ft alloy tender.

So in summing up, what do we have. A very honest and mechanically sound twin diesel flybridge cruiser with tanks replaced, and with a very presentable interior. This boat is ready to use and cruise now.
The rudder / tanks and engine upgrades make this good value, and the hull is in sound condition.
Twin engines for reliability at sea.

This is an ideal entry level vessel for a young family or for a single bloke who enjoys his fishing, or it would make an ideal live a board.

Take a look beyond the 1982 year model and you will find a surprisingly good vessel.
