Broker's Comments

This lady certainly does not look her age. She was immaculately clean when I visited and the owner keeps her like that. The carpets looked almost new and there certainly wasn't anything I could pick fault with. While I was on-board the owner started the engine first time and I have to say it was a pleasure to list this boat.

If you are looking for a family cruiser you don't want to look much further.

Leg serviced inc new bellows also (cleaned and antifouled)
