Broker's Comments

This nice example of a Nich 38 is in good condition through out and represents a lot of boat for the money. She has had the engine and gearbox completely rebuilt and the whole boat checked over before sailing her to Gibraltar for Boatshed Gibraltar to list. A good strong boat and she is in lovely condition and has been looked after well. Lovely traditional boat and a credit to her owner. She is also VAT PAID. See "More Photos" to view 43 internal and external images. Photographs, analysis and comments by Rob & Karen of Boatshed Gibraltar. NO OFFERS.
