Broker's Comments

Designed by Nicholson, built by Halmatic - they don't come with a better pedigree than that.
However, boats do need looking after, they need to be loved, cossetted even; not quite patted dry with a big fluffy towel but just a bit of normal TLC. This boat is crying out for a bit of that!
She is a quality boat, a bit elderly but none the worse for that (they built them tough in the '70's). She has had a few 'newish' upgrades in her life (Packaway mainsail, GPS etc) but she needs an owner prepared to restore her to the cosmetic condition which all yachts deserve. She is priced accordingly and is open to offers.
These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
