Broker's Comments

This Sonata has been extensively refurbished, see details above. She has an inboard diesel engine and lots of recent gear including new sails in 2007.
Don't be put of by the leaves and dirt on deck (the boat is stored next to a tree) she just needs a quick wash nothing more!
The swing keel mechanism was fully overhauled in 2007. The swing keel acts as a centre plate weighing only 80kg. The boat itself having the ballast, rather than all the weight being in the keel. This makes her more stable with the keel up, and they are great to sail too!

These boat details are subject to contract.
