Sailing Yacht SEA BUNNY



Sea Bunny is a fairly conventional centre cockpit masthead sloop.  The Hallberg Rassy marque is well suited to long distance cruising.


GRP moulded hull and deck with encapsulated iron ballast in long fin keel, rudder supported by 3/4 depth skeg. Sacrificial shoe fitted to lower part of keel and wire from keel to skeg. Teak covering on deck replaced 2009 (Thailand). All hatches understood to have been replaced 1997 (Trinidad). Topsides repainted 2016/17 in Trinidad (except blue stripe - 2012 in Thailand)

Coppercoat antifoul system applied 2012 (Thailand) , touched up 2017 (Trinidad).

Since her launch in 1985 this yacht  has cruised extensively, including a previous full circumnavigation with a former owner and again with us.

Extensive refits undertaken in 1997 (by previous owner), 2001 (UK), 2009 and 2012 (Thailand) and Trinidad 2016/7.

Sea Bunny is well equipped for ocean cruising but is equally at home in local waters
