Broker's Comments

A fast, competitive half-tonner with double inline spreader flexi rig and other modifications making her more competitive than most HB31s. To improve competitiveness under IRC the spinnaker pole has been extended and the size of the headsails reduced to 145%.

She’s also very clean and tidy inside and out with a good quality interior with nice woodwork and trim giving that extra comfort to satisfy the occasional desire to go cruising.

She has had much money spent on her in recent years to provide an extensive sail wardrobe, good instruments and standing rigging. All-in-all, a very “together” club racer.
