Broker's Comments

Classic lines – very much like the Contessas, small Nicholsons, Hustlers, that sort of yacht, a seamanlike and elegant fast cruiser.

The King Cruiser is a superbly designed long keeler from Finland, with all the quality you would expect from a Scandinavian builder. She ain’t young – 1972 was a while ago now, and I think she qualifies as a “modern classic.”

The current custodian is a retired merchant seaman with an eye for detail and a keen sense of what is seamanlike. She is well set up for single-handing and he assures me that everything works!

For not a lot of money you can get yourself afloat, and this little beauty has been to the Channel Islands and the Scilly Isles – so the world is your oyster folks!

She is ashore for the winter now, so viewing is easy – just ring me and we’ll set it up
