Broker's Comments

Moored in Bristol city centre, this boat is ready for adventures on the high seas! Indeed she is a one off, designed and built by a shipwright to sail to New Zealand! The present owner has maintained the boat well, and updated and replaced much of the hardwear including the batteries which also charge from solar panels located above the deck. The unusual mast, minimalist deck design and strong steel hull give her a ‘bomb proof’ feel that would give confidence in heavier seas. Her present mooring also lends itself to lazing on the deck in the sun during comfortable weekends in this vibrant and interesting city!
