Broker's Comments

Now here’s a couple of names to conjure with! Moody, one of our great builders, and Angus Primrose, one of our greatest designers. A quick look at the flared bow and she has Angus Primrose written all over her!

Solid, dependable, sea-kindly – but a fairly powerful boat that likes to stonk along in a blow, great fun!

Down below she has that wonderfully secure feel about her, but manages to be both cosy and roomy at the same time. The forecabin is a really nice space, with secure shelving to either beam and two really generous hanging lockers.

She ain’t young, but she wears her years well, and the old girl has many years of life left yet, so you can pick yourself up a 30 footer for less than the cost of a mid-range family saloon. Got to be worth a go!
