A separate document lays out the current owners understanding of the history of the vessel. The current owner has made significant improvements, mainly with a modern and more powerful engine and with a new mast, boom and standing rigging. Topsides were refinished early in 2018, anti-fouling was renewed at the same time. All anti-fouling was completely removed about 5 years ago and the Gelshield checked for integrity, at that time there were no signs of any hull problems.
In current ownership Cumulus has been well and regularly maintained and is offer for sale in good order ready to be sailed immediately. Sale of the vessel was unplanned but forced by health issues.
