Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.

This well known and popular brand have a great reputation for build quality and this particular boat is no exception.
I was surprised, once on the boat, at how dry she felt.
She is clearly in need of some TLC and ideal, therefore, for someone who is keen to bring this boat back to it's former glory and isn't averse to plenty of sanding and varnishing!
The Aft cabin is large with plenty of storage in very characterful drawers and cupboards.
A large dinette and galley is great for entertaining and the seating and table in the wheelhouse is perfect for summer dining and watching the world float by.
This boat would make an ideal vessel for longer stays aboard and distance cruising
