Broker's Comments

This craft is in excellent condition and well travelled having been to the Med. three times and all over the North Sea. It is clean and tidy, well maintained and in ready to go order.The owner says has good performance but is easily handled, even single handed. Known to be popular for racing also this one has the triple speader regatta rig.
The accomodation is spacious wth three separate sleeping cabins, nicely laid out galley and comfortable saloon.
Competitively priced it is seriously for sale and well worth a look.
