Broker's Comments

I am not normally a fan of French boats, but this one has made me rethink. There has been a lot of thought put into the interior design and it is impressive. She feels much bigger than her 29', without compromising on storage or comfort. She has an open plan layout, which has many advantages. Her condition is very good and she is well equipped. A very popular model throughout Europe, this boat however is one of the rare bilge keel versions. Those that know the Kelt, will all remark on their superb performance and seakeeping.
