Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract. Preliminary details awaiting owners consent.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
This is a smart well planned and spacious Lady with a decent cockpit. Well that is just what you would expect from the Moody stable.

If you are considering getting into sailing but require some space then this is the boat for you. She comes from a reknown builder and as a consequence will always be a sought after boat.
She is ideal for a couple or small family who wish to go away for weekends or summer holidays.
Her bilge keels with allow you to explore sandy creeks without being up the creek should the tides not be in your favour. A safe and sea kindly boat.

If you would like to enjoy the rest of the sailing season then make a date to come and see this lady.
