Preveza, Ionian Ionian Islands Greece
A very pretty and well mannered long keeled yacht launched in 1985, perfect for someone who appreciates a solid, seaworthy hull. She will look after you on any passage, in any weather but is just as happy as a starter boat to explore the Ionian/Mediterranean. Rustler yachts performed well in the 2018 Golden Globe Race
She has less accommodation than most modern yachts but is great for a couple or for day sailing with guests. The tiller folds up to give more room in the cockpit for entertaining.
In June 2019 she received a makeover including replacing the Houdini hatches with new GEBO hatches, new grabrails and some sprucing up of the internal and external paintwork.
The owners are currently board and sailing around Paxos and Corfu in August 2019. In September she will be ashore in Preveza.

A lowered sole for increased headroom. 2 berths with lee cloths and a quarter berth means all crew are safe even in a rough sea (and 4th occasional pipecot to port).
