Broker's Comments

This is great boat for pottering around the coast and would make an excellent first boat. She is well built and very tidy throughout. The owner is very much a supporter of the 'KISS' principle (Keep it simple, stupid). Very little can go wrong with her and if it does, it is going to be very easy to fix. She is in great condition for her age having been 'dry sailed' all her life with most of that time being out of the water. She takes me back to my first few years of boating, easy and uncomplicated.
