Broker's Comments

This classic yacht has had a serious amount of time and money spent on her in the last few years and now requires absolutely nothing. Fully repainted and re varnished last Winter, mast has been down and re wired and re varnished and the interior and exterior has also been gone through meticulously.

This is a very elegant , beautifully designed boat that will only go one way in value, so add that fact to the pleasure you will have in ownership and its a no brainer.
