15 Sept LN253 £1,800 ono Simon
Opportunities like this don’t come along very often so here is your chance to own ‘Crispy Duck’ LN 253. One of the fastest Lightning’s around; 4 times National Championship winning boat (not with me unfortunately) and Multiple open meeting winner throughout its life.

Since taking ownership in 2010 LN253 has had every possible upgrade to bring it in line with the newer Claridge Boats including: Refurbished Hull, Pod Kit, New style Rudder Blade, New Stiff Mast and boom, continuous control lines, upgraded ball bearing blocks and cleats. New Black Mylar sail for 2014 season. Flat (mast Down) Cover in good condition.

It is offered with a Launching trolley with moulded cradle. I have a road base that we use, but it is not quite the right fit, available at extra cost.

Multiple images are available of this boat on the website and in the video section, see image 5 in the gallery on the camera link above. LN253 is available for a test sail in Essex, or at an open meeting near you.

LN253 is currently lying Up River, Essex
