Broker's Comments

The Van de Stadt 8m Offshore although now 38 years old still feels a really good boat. She has been well used and cared for by the present owner and although not in perfect condition she represents good value especially with the road trailer for home winter storage or cruising different areas. The Volvo MD1 10 hp gives her the power under motor that you need and so an ideal first boat and with great flexibility.
