We are delighted to be offering UHURU for sale.   She is in sparkling condition and she is set up for both cold water and warm water sailing.   Many yacht owners prepare for adventures. Few manage to deliver as fully as Steve Powell and his family.   Throughout her lifetime UHURU has been immaculately maintained and always updated.   She is now ready for a new owner and new adventures.

Once back home, it was into the big blue sheds at Berthon for UHURU with new paint and a thorough refit to fit her for the next chapter.  Shiny and sorted, Team UHURU decided to try another cruising experience – the Mediterranean cruise…..

Team UHURU who jumped in with both feet and spend 2 very happy seasons, setting off from Lymington and then sailing into the Mediterranean and exploring Malta, the Balearics and all points between. Again the astonishing imagery was omnipresent.
