Broker's Comments

This boat has been viewed and photographed by Rupert of Boatshed Chichester. Register or log in to see 39 more photos of this boat. If an easily handled classic easily sailed by one or a couple is your idea of bliss afloat then look no further! This little Buchanan Spartan has been lovingly restored over a three year preiod up until February 2006 when her current owner bought her. It does have to be said that to restore one of these beauties costs far more than the asking price of this one, so why buy a project when you can take this one and sail her away straight away! She is very reluctantly for sale for the second time this year since her current owner has moved jobs and now is emmigrating. She really does have to been seen to apreciate fully. These boat details are subject to contract.

Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
