Broker's Comments

This is a vessel type that enjoys a good reputation for her seaworthiness, and strikes the right balance between that and user-friendliness in port and at sea. Seaworthiness is apparent from her long fin keel, the characteristic bow sheer and deep cockpit coamings. The distinctive curve on the forepart of the coach roof will aid secure footing when heeled. Deck gear is substantial. Down below is the versatile dinette arrangement to starboard, with the galley and further seating to port. Like many vessels of her age she would benefit from a little work to bring her up to scratch but the price reflects this. The boat design itself, and the marque’s build reputation, should make the effort worthwhile.
