The Meridian 31 is derived from an original Hurley 9.5 design by GJ Collier, and Monkey Business was built by Swanwick Marine in 1981.

A classic long keel motor sailer she has a large semi enclosed wheel shelter and deep cockpit that can be fully enclosed with the additional cockpit cover. With comfortable accommodation, she ticks all the boxes.

The hull has been epoxied and the present owner tells me she sails well. Equipped with adjustable yacht legs she will take the ground if required.

The standing and running rigging was replaced in 2017. All electrics overhauled in 2015. The decks and cockpit benefit from the application of TEC DECK, applied 2006.
