Wing 25 "Kiebitz"
Versatile long keel sailing cruiser - excellent condition
Kiebitz is well balanced and easy to handle. The relatively shallow draft makes her an ideal boat for the East Coast, with the added advantage of an easily lowered mast for access to the Broads and other inland waterways. She is a capable sea boat and has been sailed to Copenhagen, along the the east and south coasts of the UK and over the Channel to the French coast and the French canals.
Kiebitz has full Part 1 registration with original “blue book” and Lloyds certificate.
