SEPTANS is a strong, safe, comfortable, custom blue water cruising yacht. She has crossed the Atlantic, and been down to the Mediterranean, is well equipped, well maintained, and ready to set sail. She is rigged as a Bermudan ketch with several easily managed sails for long distance short handed cruising. She can also be sailed as a Bermudan Cutter. Her long fin and transom/skeg hung rudder provide exceptional directional stability. She was built at the Vosper Thornycroft Southampton shipyard, and commissioned in 1980.
SEPTANS has a central cockpit and a wheelhouse. She is flush decked except for the wheelhouse and aft cabin.
Two owners from new.
A lot of boat for the money, realistically priced for a quick sale.

Beta Marine 75hp diesel. These are Kubota commercial engines that are marinised by Beta Marine in the UK. Professionally installed in 2012 by the Gosport Boat Yard. Now with 700 hours running.. Regularly serviced and never missed a beat. Cruising at 6.5 knots with 3lph, maximum speed 8.3 knots.
The hull, deck, and bulkheads are foam sandwich GRP, using an isopthalic resin with woven and unidirectional rovings and chopped strand glass reinforcement and an 18mm thick Airex PVC foam core. The inner and outer skins of the hull and deck, which are approximately 6mm each, are interconnected through the foam core by GRP "top hat" sections at approx. 0.5 metre pitch throughout the length of the vessel.
Solid GRP has been used to replace the foam core from stem to stern throughout the keel, in way of localised loads, such as chain plates and in areas which are through bolted, such as portlights and hatches. The deck/hull connection is laminated internally and externally with through bolting (toerail and stanchion sockets at deck and rubbing strake at gunwhale). Very little use is made of internal linings and hence internal visual inspection of most structural joints is possible (with good access to fasteners for deck fittings etc.)
She has collision bulkheads bow and stern, and the internal space is divided into 7 watertight compartments with watertight doors. There are 9 integral tanks under the sole. These form a double bottom also increasing the watertight integrity of the hull. The long fin keel is Her construction is immensely strong.
The bearings for the transom/skeg hung rudder were replaced in 2015.
