Broker's Comments

Wooden boat's are a thing of beauty, tradition and increasing rarity in the sailing world. This esteemed boat has been sailing for longer than many of us and manages to locate that immense feeling of simplicity sailing has been taken away from. She has what is needed and enjoys the ocean the way she's always known.
