Compass Rose is a British registered, bilge keel, motor sailer. She has tiller steering in the cockpit and wheel steering in the deck saloon. I purchased her in the UK and took her to France in 2007. She has crossed Brittany by canal, travelled down the west coast of France, through the Canal du Midi and was based in the Mediterranean at Aigues Mortes for 5 years. I brought her up the Rhone to the Port de Plaiscance in Macon where she is currently berthed with the mast laid on deck. For much of the journey I was single handed. Increasing age and health issues now force my reluctant sale.
