Broker's Comments

Haven’t sold one of these before. She looks like an ideal first step into the cruiser-racer camp. I've read that she is strong, fast, and fun! I was interested to see the central genoa winch, I've used these before on Dehlers, and they are very useful, allowing the headsail winch-person plenty of room to grind the beast in in pretty short order.

Accommodation is fine, a decent galley, and the saloon is just how I like them, you feel that below decks is below decks, nice and snug! Plenty of stowage behind the settee berths, and dorade to vents keep the whole space nicely ventilated. She shows her age in the heads compartment, which is a bit basic, but the forecabin is a good size and she has all the features for a comfortable weekend away.

A bonus folks – her marina mooring is paid up until the end of March 2012, so the sooner you come and see her the sooner you can start sailing!
