Broker's Comments

48 Aluminium thoroughbred. A successful offshore racer later converted to a cruising boat. Her hull was modified professionally in 1988 for racing purposes and was refitted in 1992. Cruised Mediterranean, Caribbean, Venezuela, and east USA. Well fitted with good layout and lots of storage. Excellent deck equipment and sail handling gear. Classic good looks. See 45 "Extra photos" of interior & exterior. Viewed and photographed by Neil Chapman Boatshed Gibraltar
