Broker's Comments

This "Little Ship" is amazing in every way. If she were a classic car I would describe her condition as Concours. This really is that rare combination, a classic collectable, usable and extremely seaworthy boat. The Owners have cruised her extensively, she has been down to the Med and completed a round Britain. Do not be put off by her modest length, she is so well laid out and modified for extended cruising that any couple could be comfortable aboard her. She underwent a major refit in 2006/2007 including major alterations to her layout and rig.
