Broker's Comments

Preliminary Details: awaiting confirmation by owner. A Limbo 9.9 does not come onto the market very often, so here is an opportunity to buy a unique boat. She is an unadulterated fast sailing boat, with good levels of accommodation and equipment. Her beam means not only lots of room below, but provides ease of access to the foredeck during race conditions, she comes with an impressive wardrobe of sails.
