Parker 235 no 22 "Shiraz 2"


Having owned my Seal 22 Shiraz for over 20 years and having reached the milestone of 90 years old I decided to sell and retire from sailing late in 2017; something I instantly regretted, and decided to upgrade instead, with a Parker 235.

I have sailed Shiraz 2 for this season and although there have been some pleasant trips it has all not been plain sailing; so after just one year with my 235 I have again decided to end my time sailing and sell Shiraz 2.

At the end of the season Shiraz was lifted out, bottom cleaned, mast lowered and strapped to the road trailer for towing to West Wittering, West Sussex for winter storage.
