The design has aged very well, she has proven the test of time on the water and she is still a fast, comfortable cruiser.
"Khamsin" is the Shoal draft model of the 456, it has a slightly shorter draft of 1.95m meaning you can get closer to shore and into more marinas. She has been repowered by a Yanmar 53hp diesel in 2013 and is shaft driven.
Lazy jacks and a stack-pac make this boat a breeze to raise the mainsail and with the furling headsail, this is a boat that could quite easily be sailed short handed.
