Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.
This Handsome Colin Archer Type Gaff Rigged Cutter is a Motor-Sailer with loads of accommodation.
It is an ideal live aboard.
Built in 1962 out of Oak in Sweden, was Anti Fouled August 2008 and is now a real bargain the forty plus footer range

Please note:.

Due to recent water damage, (partially submerged whilst at the mooring) the asking price has also sunk somewhat !, now being a refit project, this vessel must be viewed to understand the amount of work required.

Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
