Broker's Comments

The 8m Offshore represents another one of the safe dependable family cruisers from the Van de Stadt line. Built in an era when they made tough solid boats with less regard to expense and more regard to quality than some of today’s production boat manufacturers. These older boats just seem to go on and on providing excellent sailing with a sensible no-nonsense layout and a great safe and sturdy feel.

This particular boat does need a few jobs doing but it shouldn’t be beyond anything a competent DIY’er could do in a few weekends. The GPS and cooker need to be fitted and general maintenance such as engine and bilge pump servicing would need to be done.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
