Broker's Comments

An Extreemly solid live aboard, go anywhere boat. Oyster have a name for strong reliability and are reckognised as the rolls of cruising under sail. It is fair to say that she needs a bit of tidying up below, her woodwork could do with some attention and instrumentation is rather dated although all are working and would still get you anywhere you wanted to go. her asking price reflects this however and she represents a nice oportunity to pick up a long distance cruiser at a good price. Lots of potential with most of the expensive work already done.These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
