Description:

“1972 Van De Stadt Selecta 940 – designed by the renowned designer EG Van De Stadt, who during his career designed over 400 yachts. ‘Kilifi’ was built by Fibocon Yachts in the Netherlands, where she spent a good portion of her life, before being brought over to the UK. Over the last 3 years ‘Kilifi’ has had an extensive interior and exterior refit, with the internal layout being modernised to make her more comfortable, the electrics have been replaced now featuring LED lights throughout, as well as accent and mood lighting. The chart table and nav station has been completely refurbished with new switch panel, stereo, VHF and heating controls fitted. A gas oven and hob has been installed, pressurised cold water, built in cool box and 12v/240V portable cool box. The galley has been updated and modernised. The heads have been completely refurbished to give the boat a much lighter feel – increasing space available. All seacocks were replaced in 2018, the engine seacock being replaced in spring 2021. The Vetus engine has been serviced by her owner annually at the beginning of ever season, fuel tank drained ever season and refilled with clean fresh diesel to avoid diesel bug. Port side aft shroud plate was replaced in the summer of 2020 and re-sealed as it showed signs of water ingress. The standing and running rigging was replaced in 2012 – the boat has been sailed very conservatively since and shows no signs of wear. ‘Kilifi’ is equipped with a Garmin GPS unit, wind direction, speed and depth. 2 x anchors, chain and warp stored fwd in the anchor locker. Lifebuoy and light mounted on the pushpit, boarding ladder. ‘Kilifi’ comes equipped with a very good condition genoa and a fair condition mainsail, she also has a selection of other sails, as well as a very good condition spinnaker. She sails excellently under genoa alone, and the sails she has offer a very flexible sail plan for any conditions, without the need to swap sails constantly. ‘Kilifi’ benefits from roller headsail furling and slab reefing mainsail as well as lazy-jacks for ease of sail handling. A brand-new mainsail cover is present as well as headsail cover, full boat cover and cockpit canopy. Overall ‘Kilifi’ is a very well set up coastal cruisier, more than capable of making a comfortable live aboard or weekend medium distance cruiser. Capable of easily achieving speeds of over 6kts under sail. She is now looking for a new home, and with only very small improvements she will be a very capable cruiser for years to come.”
