In our ownership, Jezebel has given us enormous pleasure and huge confidence in her abilities. After a brief but successful career racing with RORC, she demonstrated subsequently how easily she can be managed by a small crew (one couple is sufficient) and provide fast but secure sailing in all conditions.

Whilst maintained and cared for at all times she has been sailed very little for the last 6 years due to other circumstances. It is the owners commitments that have caused the decision to part with this much loved yacht.
