Broker's Comments

This is truley a lovely boat. She has had constant TLC, whether she needs it or not, and is in very good condition.

The lay out of the boat is very spacious and the wide side decks make it easy to get all around her. There are lots of nice features, the diesel heater being especially eye catching.

If you are looking for a different way of cruising the coast, or going further afield, then seriously consider this boat. She will turn heads wherever you go.
