Broker's Comments

Preliminary Details: awaiting confirmation by owner. It’s always nice to list a boat where the owner really knows the boat well, as it gives a strong indication that the boat has been maintained and sailed well. This is very much the case with this Rob Humphries designed MGC, which the owner has had since new and which is being reluctantly sold. This is a fast boat, but she’s designed for speed and comfort, she combines a good wardrobe of self-tacking sails, with comfortable levels of accommodation.
