Broker's Comments

This Powles 42 is ideal as a spacious family retreat or as a liveaboard, this cruiser offers everything needed for long spells on board. She has very wide side decks and a full folding windscreen to get under all the Broads Bridges. The galley offers a full size cooker and a good use of worktop and storage space and in the saloon area there is new seating and an air-conditioning unit. The BMC 2.2 diesel engine has just been fully serviced and a new bilge pump has been fitted. Very much ready to go the current owner has agreed to put a full 4 year Boat safety certificate on her for the new owner.
