Broker's Comments

Classic Morgan Giles Sloop

Refurbished extensively in 2005, the owners tell us they have loved sailing the West Coast of Scotland and now are looking for something a little bit bigger to sail in warmer climate
Presently ashore and will benefit from putting back on the water and when given a little clean will give as much pleasure as she has to her present owners
Well worth a viewing
