Description

Riduna was originally built to Lloyds 100 A1 specification. Currently in very good condition, professionally maintained and in full commission. Built for the East Coast, the design specification calls for a 4 berth vessel capable of North Sea crossings, able to explore inland waterways and capable of taking the ground. She tick all these boxes.
Her design had to be built around her two Ruston & Hornsby engines. They are sited amidships in the saloon and have been cleverly integrated creating a nav station on one side and good work surface and stowage opposite.
Generous headroom throughout her accommodation.
Helm position sited port side under a semi shelter deck. An optional fitted awning then covers then large open aft cockpit with surround seating.
She is a rather a unique vessel viewing is highly recommended.
Riduna offers the best of all worlds: sailing, cruising. Inland or at sea and comfortably copes with entertaining….a great ship.
