Broker's Comments

This boat was bought as a refit project by the current owner and pretty much completed recently. She was a prototype to the MacWester Rowan 8m, hence the unusual coachroof shape which gives a large deck area combined with good headroom below. Later versions had wider side decks and larger windows although the layout below is the same. She will give good sailing ability and is a stable and solid boat as the MacWester range became known for. An excellent starter cruiser for the family, or holiday base for those wishing to downsize. These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
