The Commodore is unusual in the fact that the aft cabin is used to house the galley and seperate dinnette. This gives better accomodation space through the rest of the vessel. Internal space is well thought out and would not disgrace a far larger craft.

Broker's Comments

The Birchwood Commodore, described by Motor Boat and Yachting magazine as "well built and well engineered and suitable for river or sea", is a true classic. This particular example has been well cared for during the last six years that she has been with the current owners. She is well equiped and has been used for extensive cruising around the East and South coast.
