Broker's Comments

The lines of her hull and stern will take your breath away, an absolute classic. Clearly she is a lady of some breeding. Not in her first flush of youth however, she is ashore and the weather and the seagulls have messed up her hair a little, but you can’t hide real class! Down below, this Morgan Giles 30 for sale at Boatshed Port Solent is as snug and welcoming as you can get, a really seamanlike design, decent sea berths and joy of joys, a Blake’s paraffin cabin heater with a real chimney! Her woodwork is nice and solid, plenty of lockers and of course the chart table faces forwards. This is a seaman’s yacht, and she has been over to the Channel Islands and France with her present owner, as well as visits to the West Country. When it comes on to blow you’ll be glad you’ve got a proper little ship to look after you – you might even enjoy it!
