Broker's Comments

See "more photos" to view 36 internal and external photos of this vessel.
A reluctant sale due to the want of a larger boat brings this pretty boat to our site. A boat well written about, and on a few occasions compared with an Ajax 23. She has been sailed and looked after in similar measures competing in the single handed RNSA races for 5 years winning her series twice in that time. Photographs, analysis and comments by Josh of Boatshed Portsmouth.
