Broker's Comments

It is easy to see why these boats are so popular. An up to date airy and light layout which works well together with nice lines and agile yet forgiving handling. This boat has seen many upgrades in the last 2 years and is well found and well presented. She could easily be sailed for the next few seasons without any further upgrading. A genuine, good value cruiser with all the reasurance of any modern bilge keeler. Well worth viewing soon! These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
