The accommodation is a little on the basic side and could benefit from some TLC. However this is reflected in the price. It is very adaptable with the full cockpit cover offering an additional double berth for summer cruising. The owner has undertaken some improvements such as the pressurised hot water system and a full rewire in 2006.

Broker's Comments

This is a good example of this popular river and estuary cruiser which benefits from a new engine being fitted in 2005. She also had a new cockpit canopy fitted at that time which can be fully lowered or part opened to suit. She has a valid boat safety certificate.
With the improvements that the owner has undertaken in recent years, she represents excellent value for money and would make a great family boat. These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
