Broker's Comments

This is a thoroughbred design by Alan Buchanan. Just look at the curve of the bow. the bowsprit, the shear line and the raked transom. If you are a classic boat lover, the lines of this yacht will be a pleasure.

The full history of this yacht is known since she was built and the current owner is the third custodian.

The current owner is overseas, hence reason for the sale. Although, the yacht is having a local eye kept on her, she will soon require a little TLC in the form of some varnish work.

Boatshed Falmouth are once again pleased to offer another classic yacht for sale.

Currently lying in Falmouth.

Offers on the asking price will be considered.
