Broker's Comments

It does go to show how far ahead of their time these boats where. They are still popular today because they deliver what a lot people need to get on the water with a good deal of comfort at a good value price. It is far to say this boat could do with bit of polishing and some upgrading on the instrumentation would help, but she could conceivably be sailed as she is and would still deliver a lot of enjoyment at a reasonable price. These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
