Owners comments


We purchased Frangi  at Dartmouth January 2003 as the flagship boat for  From 2003 to 2010 she had a MCA category A (worldwide) Certificate.   Her working year comprised of 2 circumnavigations of Britain and Ireland followed by an autumn trip from London to Gran Canaria where she would take part in the ARC (Atlantic Rally for Cruisers) before spending the winter and spring cruising the Caribbean.  She would return to England in April/May of each year.  In 2007 she was featured in the BBC Holiday Show making her passage from Antigua to Dartmouth and this can be accessed with the following links.

Following the sale of Devon Sailing Frangi was based in London and is used as an office/flat from her current base at St Katherine Docks by Tower Bridge.

The boat is currently moored in a prime position within St Katherine Docks and as of April 2015, a 12 month contract  has been taken to retain the mooring.  A purchaser may be able to retain this mooring, subject to the harbour office approval.   In recent years a number of boats within the dock have become either semi-permanent  or permanent residential moorings but again this is subject to harbour office approval. 

In 2011 she was put into dry dock for 18 months and had the hull stripped and an epoxy treatment carried out by authorised agents.  Unfortunately this work failed and in 2013 she was returned to the yard and a further epoxy treatment  undertaken.  Unfortunately the yard in question went into liquidation and whilst the work was completed the hull remained damp in certain areas.   In March 2013 a full MCA survey was undertaken on the boat and a MCA category 2 certificate was issued and this is technically still in force although much of the safety equipment is now out of date.

At the same time these works were carried out a quote was obtained to replace the existing aluminium windows with new stainless steel, but unfortunately when the order was placed the wrong windows were delivered and as a result a number of the aluminium windows are showing signs of electrolysis and the windows to the forward heads has been replaced with a seaworthy, yet temporary, replacement.

The teak decks to the boat have been resealed on a number of occasions but they are now worn to the point where a complete overhaul  or replacement is required.  

At the present time the boat is seaworthy (subject to safety equipment upgrading/ servicing)  and her MCA certificate is due for renewal in May 2015.   It is proposed to let this expire rather than upgrade all the life rafts and other safety equipment.  

The boat is VAT registered thus giving the opportunity for a commercial purchaser to recover their input VAT.
