Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.
This Birchwood is a very well presented vessel, solid and seakindly. Great value for money and the best example of this model that I have ever seen. She is bright, airey and spacious with very good headroom. She would suit a family or boat share as she provides privacy with the aft and forward double cabins. The main saloon provides a great social area This is complemented by the additional rear deck and flybridge area for sunbathing and get togethers. Those diesel Caterpillar's will whisk you off to distant shores effortlessly. I have been out on this Birchwood TS49 and she handles beautifully, virtually turning on a sixpence. For those who are mad about boats,She would make an ideal liveaboard too. Part exchange would be considered.
