Broker's Comments

As you can see from this details this boat had a serious refit in 2001, which included new wiring, upholstery, engine and navigation equipment. Her inventory is very impressive, good levels of navigation equipment including a hand-held VHF, GPS, Autohelm and Navtext, a dinghy and outboard, rope cutter, sails and covers all look in good condition.

She has a good sized cockpit, and inside there's plenty of space and the layout is practical and sociable. She really does look ready to sail.
