Ocean Minx survived a severe storm in the Mediterranean in December 2008, but sustained damage. She has now returned to Jacky Kay's yard in Ardrishaig for repairs. Estimates indicate around ?10000 required for the repair work and the asking price reflects this and she is to be sold. A full history of this classic boat is available to viewers and she is to be stored in the yard where she was rebuilt in 2000 and the builder, Jacky Kay, will be available to discuss a new owner's requirements if required.
