Broker's Comments

The family which own this boat have had many years pleasure out of her, but are moving to pastures new - hence the reluctant sale. A family cruiser with good accommodation and equipment, a fun boat to sail, easy to handle and forgiving. She appears ready to sail, but would benefit from some upgrading - for example new running rigging.
