Burnham-on-Crouch Essex UK|
The North Wind 405 is a high-volume, centre cockpit yacht designed by Angus Primrose and built in Spain. 'Francipam' is believed to be the only lift keel version of this model built, as specified by her first and current owner. She has beaching legs which enable her to dry out on suitable ground increasing the flexibility of this boat. 'Francipam' has been in her current ownership from new and it is time for a new owner to take her on and give her a new lease of life. She would make an ideal liveaboard for extended cruising. Her teak decks are original and are in need of refurbishment.
