Broker's Comments

This Ballad is an extremely well presented and maintained yacht. Her hull below the waterline was sand blasted in 2010 and coated with 2 coats of Gelshield 2000.
She is currently set-up for local club racing but could with further investment be converted into a safe, seakindly cruiser/racer. Previous Ballads have been entered into the famous Jester Challenge Cross Atlantic race.
