Broker's Comments

This boat is a real find and a very well appointed Craft. The galley is well equipped, with comfortable seating in the saloon and two cabins have ensuite facilities.
Ideal for the present owners use as a spacious liveaboard, it would also suit those looking for a more traditional Broads Cruiser for those HI-Days and Holidays.

These boat details are subject to contract.
