Broker's Comments

This boat was viewed and photographed by Matt Popovic of Boatshed Lake Michigan.

Her brand name might be slightly faded and hard to make out, but she clearly has all the first class qualities of a Beneteau! She has been maintained beautifully by her owner and every time he describes a feature of the boat he gets a sad far away look as if he is remembering all the good times spent on her. From her rich mahogany interior to her comfortable cockpit, this beauty will continue to make sailors happy for many years to come.
