Broker's Comments

This is a good example of a popular sailing cruiser that seems to have quite a following, certainly in this area. It has been in the same ownership since 2000 and has cruised the North Sea extensively, crossing over to Holland and Belgium many times. Said to be safe, sturdy and seaworthy it handles well, even single handed and the accomodation is spacious and efficiently laid out. Competively priced it is worth a look.
