Broker's Comments

This yacht is well presented and has had a number of recent upgrades to the basic successful format. She benefits from recent new standing rigging and sails as well as a new heads, freshwater tank and Eberspacher heating system. The decks and hull are clean and the yacht is in regular family use. With the fully serviced swing keel design she is an ideal coastal cruiser that can also slip onto a a quiet river mooring with shallow draft.
