Broker's Comments

This is a really nice, practical family sailing yacht, with bags of internal space and roomy cockpit. She has been adapted for Broads use with a self-tacking jib and A frame for mast lowering, but would make an equally good coastal cruising boat and is equipped with navigation gear to suit. She comes with a Boat Safety Certificate to May 2013 and is ready for the water. Early inspection recommended.
