OYSTER 37, 8 Berth Sloop Sailboat 'Amazing Grace'
Amazing Grace was purchased in late 2012 by its current owner, for three specific purposes: The first was to participate in offshore racing competitively, the second was to compete in club racing and the third was to have some great cruising holidays in.
She more than fulfilled expectations on all three levels. She was the overall Winner of the Dun Laoghaire to Dingle Race in 2013 and Class Winner in 2015. She competed in the Rolex Fastnet Race in 2015 the Round Ireland Race in 2014 but unfortunately had to retire from the Round Ireland due to a broken gooseneck connection, when lying 2nd in Class and 4th Overall and making great headway! Since then we have enjoyed many cruising holidays along the South & West Coast of Ireland.
She is a safe and sturdy boat in rough seas, but also performs very well in light winds.
Having reinvested heavily in the boat and upgrading as required, the boat is now in even better condition than it was in 2012.
Most importantly, the boat has now gained a P6 sailboat commercial license from the Marine Surveyors Office and Dept of Transport, Tourism and Sport. This being a P6 Licence, no. 1746, for up to 8 persons.
Most recently the interior has been re-sanded and re-varnished and painted throughout to a high standard.
The list of items either replaced or added in the new is endless, but these are just some of the more important items:
• New Sails – list available.
• New Rig in 2011.
• New Autopilot in 2013.
• New Standing Rigging – always upgrading.
• New cooker with grill in 2014.
• New lightweight carbon fibre spinnaker pole in 2014.
• New batteries and battery charger in 2020.
• New upholstery and hardly used since.
• New Chartplotter in 2013 and binnacle compass in 2016.
