    Owners Comments

    I have owned Orion for the last 15 years and during that period have only used the boat for day sailing, the only race I have used her for is Around The Island on 2 occasions. 

    During my ownership Orion has been professionally maintained with many upgrades. I have the majority of invoices for the additions and upgrades carried out. 

    I am selling Orion as I am now giving up sailing. (There are many extra items available)
