Mcgruer - 8 metre Cruiser Racer

Sailing BoatsMcgruer8 metre Cruiser RacerUnited Kingdom

Classic McGruer 41 international 8 metre cruiser racer, in beautiful condition - she is a well known vessel with much maritime history stored in her bilges.  Much of the racing reports from the 1966/67 era talk of her being a good heavy air boat and taking home the chocolates!  Having undergone a recent restoration and refit that can only be described as 'total' and equivalent in cost to a new boat, she presents in stunning condition...….almost a 'piece of furniture'.    However, she is equipped with modern rigging and systems that blend into her historic structure, she can be dangerous on the race track.  Have a look at the pictures on this web site but please contact us for a copy of the high resolution images.  The list of upgrades and equipment will take a bit of reading!
