Broker's Comments

She has sailed in the West Country, Isles of Scilly, round Ireland Isle of Man & West Coast of Scotland.
Has the benefits of a traditional boat but ideal if you lack the time to maintain a timber hull. This boat has been immaculately maintained by her owners since they commissioned the build in 1999.
These boat details are subject to contract.
