Broker's Comments

A popular and attractive design from 1970, the Offshore 8 metre is a fast, manoeuvrable cruiser with roomy accommodation and good headroom.

The current owner doesn't use her that much and as a result is in need of some work.

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