Broker's Comments

This is a beautiful character boat and ideal for long term cruising with lots of storage and ideal as a live aboard. She needs a little work but has huge potential and is a lot of boat for the money. She is manageable by 2 people and a few of this design by William Garden of Vancouver have circumnavigated short-handed so hop onboard and see the world.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
