Broker's Comments

This is a serious all year round cruising boat which is equipped for single handed use. It was professionally fitted out to a high standard.
It is well cared for by its fastidious owner
and has been kept up to date with new equipment. Comfortable, dry, clean and tidy it is in excellent condition and is ready to set sail now.
If this is the type of craft you are looking for you will not be disappointed when you come to view. One I would be happy to own myself.
Owner is prepared to consider part exchange.
