In addition to the foregoing Verlesque has been extensively refurbished internally and is in a condition that would put many a more modern boat to shame.
Verl 900 "Verlesque"
Verlesque is a very well maintained and cherished example of this classic marque. Her sloop rig is partricularly easy to handle and her deep cockpit provides excellent security in most weather conditions. Her ballast ratio is an excellent 45% making for comfortable passages in a good and stable condition. At anchor or alongside the accommodation is particularly cozy and well finished throughout.
Verlesque benefits from being fitted with a Volvo Penta MD2020D marine diesel engine, actually a Perkins Perama in all but colour, replacing the original engine in the late 1990's.
Very heavily constructed of GRP built up in much the same way as a wooden vessel with massive beams, frames and longitudinals. Externally the rudder is protectedv by a full length skeg.
By modern standards this vessel would be considered to be vastly over engineered.
Verlesque was fitted with a new Volvo Penta MD 2020B in 1996. This is a twenty hp unit that is well suited to the vessel and is in good operational order. It drives a sail drive unit fitted with a two bladed folding propeller.
