LOA 19ft. LWL 16ft, Beam 6.25ft, Draft (twin) 2ft, Displacement 1568lb, Ballast 545lb, Sail area 150sqft, Construction GRP, Headroom 4.4ft.
The Fantasie 19 was designed by Robert Tucker and is a 19ft triple keel GRP constructed mini cruiser suitable for coastal and estuary cruising. I sail her in Chichester Harbour, and have personally sailed her to the Nab Tower, Portsmouth Harbour, Seaview (IoW) and this year to Cowes.
I have owned "Papillon" since 2009 and in that time she has had new standing rigging (in the winter of 2009/10), new running rigging winter 2010/11. The cabin was extensively re-furbed winter 2010/11 (old headlining removed/scraped back/painted).
She comes with jib/genoa (new in 2009 from Arun sails), and a good condition main. Reefing for the main is the boom roller type which works well (two reefing handles included), the jib/genoa is on a Plastimo 406-S roller furler. All lines have been lead aft to the cockpit and she is optimised for sailing solo...
She is sitting on, and is being sold with, a trailer that is not suitable for road use - I use it for moving her round the sailing club yard and launching (it also helps when painting/anti fouling underneath).
I have anti-fouled and she is in all respects ready to go sailing right now - all you will need is an outboard *.
In the four years I've owned her, she's looked after me, and taught me many things and we've had some fantastic sailing trips - I'm only selling as it's now time to be moving on, and I'm looking for something bigger....
From PBO publication 'Which Boat' - "Attractive, well made, three berth twin keeler with practical outboard well, skeg mounted rudder and good directional stability."
From Hoskyns Yacht Directory - " useful pocket cruiser"

* Recommended engine size is a 4-6hp outboard (I use a 4HP/2 stroke/standard shaft) which sits in a well at the rear of the cockpit (this allows you to manage/refuel the engine from within the cockpit - much safer than having the engine on the back - I think this is a major bonus)
