Broker's Comments

Yes a 52ft yacht with a 15ft beam for under £50k, now this deserves your attention.
Her size impresses as you step on to the foredeck, you wonder immediately, what’s she like inside, well i can tell you, big and cosy, she has a nice saloon with a leather chair to sprawl on in front of the diesel fired heater and tv.
She would make a nice live-aboard with the capabilities of making extended sailing trips, all for under £50k, wow!

She is a bit cluttered with the possessions of the current owner and could do with some tlc and topside paint job if the colour is not to your liking, but over all, for the price, she is worth a viewing.
