She took previous owners across the Atlantic. She looks forward to continuing her journey with a new owner. All lines back to the cockpit make her well suited to short-handed sailing, newly installed Webasto heater keeps her snug, and her efficient wind generator keeps the batteries topped up when at anchor in remote locations.

We have owned Zuleika Dobson for 20 years, but now have to reluctantly accept that the increasing years (ours, not hers) have made it impossible any longer for trips away, and a solo sail around Weymouth Bay on my own for a couple of hours a few times during the year does not justify the maintenance work involved. She needs to be used, so, sadly, she is now for sale.
