- Owner’s Comments We have cruised extensively and happily, primarily on the coast of Western France. The lift keel has enabled us to take the ground, find anchorages and pick up sheltered buoys that others cannot use. No thought or expense was spared in making her comfortable and safe; she is RYA inspected and coded. We have found her fast; passage planning at 6 kts and have achieved 10 knots downwind. She handles well under sail and was stable in 45 kts mid-Channel. She is set up for single handed sailing with no need to leave the cockpit when sailing.
- Broker’s Comments Her first owner bought LIMOSA new, spending over £188,000 on her, adding extensively to her standard inventory. Her well thought out gantry gives her numerous benefits from outboard and dinghy davits to raised support for antennas and electronics. His approach to having safety back-ups where possible is illustrated by the number of batteries, the secondary bilge pump and improved engine pre-filter and diesel lines, dual alternators, interchangeable chart plotter and radar displays, twin headsails.
- Remarks Feeling, world leaders in lift keel GRP yachts are renowned for their innovative, large, light and airy cabins and superbly crafted joinery. Feeling yachts combine cruise anywhere versatility with excellent sailing and sea keeping performance, also giving unbeatable access to creeks, estuaries, harbours and even the French canal system. The Feeling 39 offers outstanding accommodation and volume for her size, giving her the space of 40 footer but with the ease of handling of a 36 footer. She can accommodate eight.
- The name is the genus for the Godwit (a wading bird, common in Poole) and a play on ‘limous’, Latin for mud, relevant to taking the ground!
