Broker's Comments

Moulded by Ocean Mouldings, fitted out by Terry Erskine Yachts, her first owner used her for two seasons only in Falmouth before she was bought by her present owners in 1987. She was fitted out for 'Blue Water Cruising' by her newly-wed owners who then departed on a 'twenty year honeymoon'!
A leisurely cruise south found her in the Med for the next eight years followed by an Atlantic crossing. After four years in the Caribbean she returned to Milford Haven. This boat has been well maintained and her equipment up-dated as required by her very meticulous owner. If you are looking for a proper ship, and a very handsome one at that, ready to go anywhere, or a comfortable live-aboard, she should be high on your list.
