    About this Sailboat:

    very good companion for sailing.
    We have been around Corsica and Sardegna onboard with our 2 little kids, meeting lost of different kind of wheather but thanks to many sails it was just find

    The interior is very simple and the front bunk would need to be changed (the
    mattress is tired and the tissue is torned)
    Apart from that the boat is ready to sail

    The boat has been careened each year (last time was this winter)

    We have to change boat because we have now 4 kids and there is not enough
    place to sleep on Gwendolyne, otherwise we would keep it!!! We are looking
    for a bigger one with 6 bunks…

    Please don’t hesitate to ask for more information and tell us if you come to
    France and wish to visit it
