Broker's Comments

A classic gentlemens motor sailor cruising boat from Port Hamble Ltd, she is understood to be a one off and was unveiled at the London Boat Show in 1968. She has had just 2 owners since 1983 and benefited from a substantial overhaul to engines and superstructure in 2006 (receipts available). The galley and heads have just been modernised. She has cruised the mediterranean extensively although is equally at home on a river or canal. An ideal live aboard. Please note that more recent photos showing finished deck renovation will be uploaded soon!
