Broker's Comments

This is the very first of about 80 racing OOD34s ever built. Originally owned by Jeremy Rogers himself. Steeped in history and with a very successful record in club racing this yacht is now on the market. Very keenly sought after as a competitive cruiser/racer, she could also be used as a family cruiser with a few modifications. Well loved and maintained by her current owner for nearly two decades, here is an opportunity to own a very seaworthy, solidly built cruiser/racer at a realistic price.
These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
