Various Details from the owner;

"During the previous owners time, she was sailed to Scotland, Ireland, France, Spain, Portugal, Gibraltar and the Western Mediterranean. Whistler has behaved impeccably throughout. She has also taken part in occasional races to France and Spain and round the cans in Plymouth Sound. She has over-wintered in the Algarve and the South of France. Having sailed round to Gibralter and the Mediterranean, she returned to UK north through France, up the Rhone and then via the Canal Lateral de la Loire to the Seine and through Paris.

Under current ownership she has sailed to the West Country and the Channel Islands in the Summer. A memorable Channel crossing with a F4 gave us a 10 hour crossing and an average speed of 7 knots. The new engine and Autoprop have made a significant difference to her performance and economy and handling in reverse is much easier. "

General Construction
Hull and deck are glass fibre, the main deck and cockpit sole being finished in the excellent She-deck non-slip surface. The keel is of lead and antimony and bolted to the hull. The engine is a new Betamarine beta28 diesel engine, professionally fitted in 2010. A 100A alternator was specified in the upgrade. The stainless steel shaft is now metric (25mm) which is supported by an external P bracket and water lubricated bearing. The 3-blade Brunton Autoprop propeller is protected by the skeg-hung rudder. All skin fittings are earthed to an external anode. A separate shaft anode protects propeller and shaft.
The toe rail is anodised aluminium with separate bow and aft cleats. Berth cushions are of foam type finished in green marine grade mildew-resistant upholstery material (2011). Headlinings are of patterened vinyl except in the heads and forecabin where they are fibreglass mouldings.
Fuel tank is of stainless steel with a shut off valve. A water separator and primary filter is incorporated into the fuel system

Saloon area
In the saloon are settee berths which extend to form wide single berths with lee cloths. Beneath each is a stainless steel water tank and a storage locker. Behind the upright seat cushions are storage lockers. To port, above and outboard of the settee berth is a pilot berth with lee cloth (very good for storage).
The dining table seats six when extended. To starboard is a drinks cabinet forward with storage lockers behind and above the seat cushions. Lighting is provided by twin tube fluorescent lights and reading lights at the aft end of each berth.
The chart table is huge and is to port aft of the saloon. There is substantial chart storage area below the hinged desk lid, together with a knee-height cubby hole below and three useful drawers accessible from the foot of the stairs. 
Astern of the chart area is a long quarter berth, with lee cloth, the head of which serves as the navigator's seat. Locker and shelf above and two lockers below.

Accommodation - Forecabin area
The forecabin is fitted with V berths and an infill panel/cushion converts these to a double berth. There are three lockers underneath these berths (which now also house the additional heavy duty battery and switch gear that drives the electric anchor windlass). At the front of the cabin is the access panel to the chain locker. There is a storage area along each side of the hull. A three drawer storage locker is located aft of the starboard berth. A fluorescent light fitting is located aft of the port berth. There is an aft-facing hatch to the foredeck and a step for use of this access route.
The heads is in a separate compartment astern of the forecabin on the port side. It boasts a Lavac toilet, cupboards, shelves and basin, water to which is provided by FloJet automatic pump (2013). There are three seacocks located in the cupboard under the sink. Fluorescent light above, shaver socket (needs attention). Hatch and ventilator in heads.
Opposite the heads is the good-sized wet locker, which can also house flares. Access to the log paddle wheel is via the cabin sole between the heads and the wet locker.

Galley, Engine and cockpit
The engine cover itand stairs to the cockpit separate the navigation area to port from the galley on the starboard side. Access to the sea-water inlet sea-cock is below the foot of the stairs. Forward against the saloon bulkhead is a stainless steel sink with electrically pumped fresh water. There are two sea-cocks located under the cooker. Beneath the sink is a good sized locker and a drawer. Aft of the sink is a gimballed Plastimo cooker (2001) with two burners, grill and oven. Aft again is a working area with an insulated cold locker - now also containing an electric fridge - and good sized cupboard. Crash bar and strap for cooking at sea. Outboard of the galley are cave lockers for plates, crockery, glasses and foodstuffs. 2 x 13 amp sockets for mains shore power, when connected.
The cockpit has a large locker to starboard  with access to insulated hot water tank (heated by the engine or an immersion heater when connected to the mains through shore power, which is connected through a socket located aft of the starboard cockpit locker. There is a dedicated life-raft locker to port. Stern locker for warps and sheets. Gas cylinder locker to port, aft for 2 Camping Gaz 907 cylinders with mechanical stop-valve.
Although originally moulded in shape to accommodate wheel steering, Whistler has always been tiller steered. There is both Raymarine ST4000 electric self-steering and mechanical wind vane self-steering (Autosteer by Clearway Design).
