Broker's Comments

This Maurice Griffiths Francis Drake design is a lovely design. It has a solid steel hull and its shape is a delight. This one does require a refit but has considerable potential for someone looking for a classic design. These boats have an ocean going reputation and this one when updated will be no exception!
