After 16 years of joint ownership, Robin and I have decided to sell the yacht we had intended to keep only for 6 years! You see, we were having too much fun and after six years we had only visited the arctic circle once. Now we have visited a high percentage of harbours on the western coast of Europe, from the top of Norway to Gibraltar, and also a fair selection of them in the Med. We conclude that, while the Nic 38 is quite at home in the med, her best cruising waters are those of more northern climes, where the deckhouse steering position and Eberspacher heating provide such good crew protection and cruising comfort.

More an update than a reply: Voltair is now at Suffolk Yacht Harbour a few miles upstream from Felixtowe on the northern/eastern bank of the River Orwell, and just a few miles from Ipswitch. Robin skippered the last cruise she made a few weeks ago, reaching Tower Bridge and St Katherine’s Dock before turning downstream again. She has now been hauled out and Clarke and Carter are agents for selling her. Robin reported everything working well upon his return, and the wheelhouse hood has been re-windowed and fettled. Now she just needs a buyer, and as we have her on sale at a very low price, we hope to find one soon.

A further update on Voltair – currently on the hardstanding at Suffolk Yacht Harbour, with a For Sale sign on her.

Have now refurbed the starter motor and solenoid and am looking forward to putting it back together come the spring.

And I’m also fixing the B&G anemometer which has been rather reluctant to spin in lighter winds recently.

Other than that, if you want a real bargain, make us an offer before the end of February, as once the season begins, the price will go UP by £10,000.

OK – it’s gone past the end of February and we didn’t put the price up, only in our minds!

We have now refitted the refurbed starter motor to the 4-108, and it works perfectly, along with the engine which we tested on 23-Mar-18.

We also repaired some frost-induced leaks in the hot water circuit to the heads/shower from the gas water heater.

We also checked the function of the Eberspacher 3Kw blown hot air system, which is also working perfectly.

Now we need a buyer or partnership to take over the boat before the season starts.  NO OFFERS REJECTED OUT OF HAND SO PLEASE GET IN TOUCH via 07836-596771 or jksenex-at-gmail.com

Voltair was sold last month to Joe Reece from Lancashire.  Joe has already joined the group, so I guess I should find out from Marilyn if Robin and I can still make posts here, or if Joe is to take our slot, as it were.

We wish Joe many happy years of sailing Voltair in UK waters, many of which she hasn’t visited for quite some time.
