Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.

With those classic sports cruiser looks and having been fully restored by it's current owner this Blue Nile Cleopatra 23 is ready to be enjoyed by all. A good sea boat with generous beam means it's ideal for a spot of fishing. A good selection of nav kit is also included. Down below headroom is particually good for a boat this size. A full cockpit cover new in 2004 will keep you sheltered from the elements when conditions are less than ideal.

This Blue Nile Cleopatra 23 has been personally photographed and viewed by Ed Leckie of Boatshed Sussex. Click here for contact details.
