    Fra is a very tidy and clean cruiser racer. She has been exceptionally well looked after by her current owner, the specification speaks for itself. Most Seal yachts, designed by the famous yacht designer of the time, Ron Holland, were lifting keel. Fra is a fin keel and draws 1.60m making her probably and somewhat faster than her lifting keel sisters. If you are looking for a fun boat to club race and take the family on a summer cruise then this boat should be on your list to view.
    The current owner has sailed Fra mostly singlehanded, crossing to France five times during the last two years. in 2017, Fra was 3rd in class and 69th overall out of 1400 entries in the ISC Round the Island Race.
