BM 872 – ASBO For Sale ***SOLD***



872 controls WHOLE 872

It is time for me to try something new.

With that in mind ASBO is now for sale.

Most of you know her well but for those who don’t, she is a Claridge ply boat with a twist. The hull is clad inside and out with glass making for a long low maintenance life with no worries if paint scratches off. This also makes her very stiff with extra glass on the floor which means no flexing.

She sports a Super Spar carbon mast and a Claridge carbon boom.

ASBO was fitted last year with adjustable shrouds and also has adjustable lowers.

She has a mixture of Ronstan and Allen blocks and fittings plus Spinlock PXR cleats.

On the stern there is a carbon stock fitted with a Jeremy Higson rudder blade and a carbon tiller extension.

There is a choice of sails from used only for one open to used for one season. Happy to sell with a couple of sails or all 5.

ASBO remains to be a fast light boat and can run at the front of the fleet even carrying me weighing in at 17 Stone.

I have loved sailing ASBO and hope she finds a good home.
