IN NEEED OF TLC – Please read below:
The Dragonfly 1000 from Quorning is a robust and refined cruising trimaran. Built to the quality you would expect from a Danish yard, offering comfort for 4 people in the cabin, and with the high cruising speeds you would expect from a trimaran. The folding wings and lifting centreplate give you the freedom to berth wherever and whenever you want.
Champus is ready for her next home and is priced to sell. She is in need of some work to bring her up to sailable standard and she will be flying again in no time:
Known work required:
Heating unit missing
Water maker missing
GRP work required to wing /hull joints
Deep clean required
Engine electrics need work (engine runs well)
New standing rigging
Rudder stock and mechanism needs inspection and tightening (believed to have worked lose rather than damaged)
Would benefit from a new set of electronics
Cosmetic tidying required inside and out
Condition of sails unknown but believed to be serviceable
Canvas cockpit enclosure ok but would ideally be replaced
Please note there is no paperwork to prove VAT paid or Certificate of Conformity (CE plate is in place in cockpit).
She is well specified with solar charging, radar, heating, folding prop, furling boom and headsail, she will make a great boat for light-handed sailing. She has an extended galley making her 4 berth rather than 5. The hull appears to be in serviceable condition, and she comes complete with her transport/yard cradle which is very important with the Dragonfly boats.
All in all a lovely boat in need of some TLC, and a bargain considering the price these normally change hands for – in excess of £50k.
Manufacturer Provided Description
Preceded by 40 years of design and production experience, the drawing board of world renowned naval architect Borge Quorning has produced a totally unique, high-performance, luxury cruiser whose innovations will transform your concepts of pleasure sailing. The Dragonfly 1000 has put Quorning Boats years ahead. Not only does she display all those qualities for which the Dragonfly's are already famous, her exquisite liveaboard accommodations surpass the highest degrees of quality. Light weight and immense strength are characteristic of the Dragonfly 1000's superb construction. The high-performance fractional rig and high-buoyancy amas combine to produce ultra responsive control and power while providing exemplary stability and speed. Cruising speeds climb as high as 25 knots while maintaining a maximum heeling angle of only 10 degrees. She is equipped with full-battened mainsail and unique patented vertical-battened roller-furling mylar jib by Elvstrom sails. The centerboard and rudder kick up to reduce the draft to 1.6 feet making shallow ports and gunkholes easily accessible. Ingeniously laid out for singlehanded sailing, an elegant Whitlok steering wheel graces the roomy teak-trimmed cockpit with all halyards, control lines and reefing pendants lead aft. No helmsman has had a more comfortable station. She is equipped with the best quality Danish deck gear including Andersen winches, a custom-designed mainsheet and battencar systems by Frederiksen. All lines across the coachroof top are enclosed, giving the Dragonfly 1000 a sleek elegant appeal. In one minute, the strong, easy to operate Swing Wing system reduces her 24 ft. beam to 11.6 ft. making her easy to dock and maneuver. The attention to detail exemplifies meticulous engineering and represents a whole new concept in performance cruising. There is no false luxury aboard The Dragonfly 1000, only perfect mastery of space, light and an exceptional talent with texture and materials. Every aspect of your comfort is taken into consideration with a generous spacious interior that is foremost a livable boat, functional and creative. With 6-foot 1-inch standing headroom, there is no more stooping. A large forward cabin, complemented with quality Danish furnishings and separate head with pressurized hot and cold water, contributes to the ease of spending long periods of time on board. A fully equipped galley graced with exquisite teak cabinetry is highlighted by a wide, clear companionway. Ingenious little nooks are used to give extra stowage and efficient halogen lamps are positioned for soft reflective lighting. A teak salon table ready to accommodate eight good appetites also folds down to allow easy passage. The sandwich construction gives optimal insulation while her state-of-the-art ventilation system will pleasantly surprise you.
