Broker's Comments

The Cobra 850 is a sought after bilge keeled cruising yacht from a well respected designer and builder. Quite quick for her size, she is well mannered and a good sea boat. A test report of her smaller sister (Cobra 750) in November 2004 PBO finds them to be well mannered, generally well built and with reasonable performance. An active Cobra owners club and over 1,300 boats built testify to their popularity. This one is in commission now, and benefits from recently renewed rigging, in-mast furling and wheel steering but she would benefit from a small amount of cosmetic attention and equipment up-date.
