Broker's Comments

This delightful craft is reluctantly offered for sale. Built specifically for a friend of Maurice Griffiths she is a one off that sail well and takes the weather in her stride. Cruised in the last few years around the Hebrides, Orkney and faroes, the South Coast and Scillys, and the Bristol Channel with three trips to Ireland including a circumnavigation. A perfect cruising boat with a fair turn of speed.These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
