Broker's Comments

The Neptunian is a highly regarded classic long keel ketch, designed by Alan Buchannan.
This particular boat was fully refurbished in 1998, including the engine.
There is a huge inventory of safety and other equipment, including lots of up to date electronic and electrical equipment.
She is also very well kitted out for longer
haul sailing with Hydrovane self-steering.
The current owner has cruised the East Coast as far as the Farne Islands and says it is easily handled by 2 people, performing equally well under sail or power.
