Legnos Mystic 20 Cat Boat, 1977

This rare Legnos Mystic 20 cat boat has been extensively refitted by a very knowledgeable yachtsman. It has been repowered with a state of the art Thoosa electric motor making it "walk on cat feet" silently under both power and sail with remarkable range. The motor recharges the batteries while sailing. She has a 12 volt remote controlled electric winch and tabernacled mast for easy raising and lowering the rig for trailering.
