Broker's Comments

This sturdy motor cruiser is in remarkable condition for its age and much equipment has been recently replaced including new cooker and heating. It has, unusually for this type twin engines for good manoeuvrability and a good turn of speed when required.
A smaller boat may be taken in part exchange.
It has had mainly fresh water use in the last five years and is a good compromise for inland and coastal cruising. Having been built on the Broads it should be. The accomodation is spacious, comfortable and nicely fitted out.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
