Often referred to as “the Snapdragon’s daughter”, my Invader 22 is up for sale. Bought as an inshore motor cruiser, I have since bought a replacement mast and boom and had a new mast mounting footplate fabricated to fit it to Gingo. Covid-19 restrictions delayed, and then subsequent resulting poor health in the family, completely killed off any hope of getting round to fitting the mast, and I’m now hoping the next owner has the time and strength to do her proud by fitting it as she’s a cracking wee boat with many years of sailing left in her.

Internal photos here are shown for layout example, Gingo has dark blue upholstery in that layout and has an additional beer fridge fitted…..

Any inspection welcome, she is currently securely stowed ashore in Aberdour Harbour in Fife, Scotland and can be put into the water for test for the serious buyer given sufficient notice to drum up a launching party….
