Broker's Comments

An ex-demo Rib by Leeway who only produce 'Bespoke' Ribs, this one has all of the extras and a real turn of speed too. Having been out on her, she turns with ease and rides the 'solent chop' without effort. She handles superb at a fraction of the cost of similar sized craft?These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
