Broker's Comments

this Swedish motor cruiser is as you would expect well built and very well designed, like many Scandinavian designs the use of space is excellent the cockpit houses the galley and a good size dining area. the saloon area has ample storage and seating with access to the port side double berth cabin and the heads. The aft cabin is accessed from the cockpit providing a well designed cabin with a double berth plenty of storage and a vanity unit. As you can see from the photos and the details she is a very nice example having been well maintained making this a much sort after motor cruiser.
