Other information:
Sula was built in 1996 by Plymouth Pilots for the present owners and has been used for pleasure/angling only.
GRP construction comprising hull, ring deck, engine/floor bearers, bulkheads and lockers.
Varnished iroko trim including rubbing strakes, stringers, thwart, rudder and tiller. Gunnels and strakes have stainless steel (316) protection. All fittings and fasteners are marine grade stainless.
2-Cylinder Volvo-Penta (D1-13) diesel engine (13hp) was new in 2010 and has done 479 hours. Water-cooled, wet exhaust with muffler, F-N-R controls, electric start and engine panel.
Sula is an open boat in traditional Westcountry layout with large bow storage locker; stern storage locker housing 20L fuel tank; quarter storage lockers with iroko seat tops and a mid-ships iroko thwart (bolted, removable). The main deck comprises removable 18mm marine ply boards (non-slip painted) within a teak grid providing ample under-deck storage together with space for ballast. Engine box is iroko-trimmed ply with internal sound dampening.
Sula is fitted with 12V DC electrics including navigation and deck lights and a Rule 800GPH auto/manual bilge pump. A Whale manual pump is also fitted.
A traditional stepped 'sprit-sail' mizzen mast and sail is fitted to enable Sula to sit head to wind at anchor or on the drift.
Sula is a superb and very well maintained example of the well-proven Plymouth Pilot 18 - an excellent sea boat that is comfortable, stable and ideal for coastal day cruising, angling and 'pottering about'. The Volvo-Penta engine is extremely reliable and economical.
Sula is currently lying ashore and comes with bespoke built galvanized launching trailer that can be readily dismantled for storage when not in use.
Sula is for sale due to purchase of new vessel.
