Broker's Comments

This is probably the best example of a Kent 8m Motorsailer that you will find anywhere. She has been extensively and sympathetically refitted by her present owner who is a very competant retired aircraft engineer. Consequently, every mechanical and electrical part of this vessel works just as it should - a rare commodity on most yachts even half her age!
She is an out-and-out motorsailer that has been to Ireland and Liverpool recently, crewed by husband and wife, and she's even been known to race around the local cans, though it must be said she didn't win much silver! She is a safe and solid seamanlike vessel at a very realistic asking price, only for sale since her owners have purchased a larger yacht.
This boat has been viewed and photographed by Alan Coy of Boatshed Wales. Register or log in to see 45 more photos of this boat. These boat details are subject to contract.

Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.

Disclaimer The particulars detailed herein are intended to give a fair description of the vessel but their accuracy cannot be guaranteed. These particulars are not and shall not form part of any offer or contract for the sale of the vessel and are supplied on the understanding that all negotiations shall be through Boatshed, who act as agents for the vendor. The vendor is not selling in the course of a business unless otherwise stated. The prospective purchaser is strongly recommended to check the particulars and, where considered appropriate, at his own expense, to employ qualified agents to carry out structural and/or mechanical and/or electrical surveys and inspections in order to assess the actual condition of the vessel before purchase.
