Broker's Comments

Preliminary Details: awaiting confirmation by owner. Built to withstand the vagaries of Scandinavian sea-conditions, this is a robust cruiser, equally at home exploring estuaries as on the open sea. She has a very traditional feel, combined with good levels of navigation equipment, including a recent chart-plotter and lots of space for her size. She has been well maintained by her current owner, who is selling her because he has bought a larger boat.
