Broker's Comments

A very good example from this well known builder and full credit to the owners in having her regularly maintained to a high standard.
36 were built and this one is Build no.22
Only now with the fourth owner from new this one was built for a well known Holiday Company owner.
As soon as you step aboard you can see that this is a very spacious boat having a single level deck which is good for mooring. I also liked the side deck access with the recessed step and also being able to have the boarding ladder to hand.
Many upgrades have been fitted for user friendly handling and comfort.
