Broker's Comments

It is not often you get to buy an older boat and have the piece of mind of a brand new Volvo engine and duo-prop outdrive, well that is what you get with this boat.
The Carrera is a superb boat for its size offering a blend of space, comfort and superb seakeeping abilities. Very few boats in its class match it in these repects.
With the benefit of the new engine and outdrive package this boat can offer its new owner trouble free boating as well as piece of mind. The boat is 20 year old and will benefit from investment in some cosmetic areas most notably the cockpit upholstery.
The boat has however been well maintained externally having benefited from an "A" Glaze polish. treatment in Spring 2006.
