Broker's Comments

This boat is a proper little ship, obviously fit for purpose. Extremely spacious for a boat of this length. Each cabin has an en-suite toilet and shower and the cabins are comfortable and not cramped. You can enjoy the space and comfort with friends, live on her, or use her for corporate entertainment. The fly bridge gives excellent views over the whole boat for manoeuvring in tight spaces. The vast teak decks provide superb areas for entertaining and the fly bridge is particularly roomy. The saloon is well fitted out. Some work down below may be desired to bring her up to date. However, she is an exceptional boat offering great value! These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
