Broker's Comments

Another great little ditch crawler presented in immaculate order for her age. Whta's more she's from the design board of the renowned Ian Proctor who is well known, especially in the dinghy racing world. The Pirate 17 is indeed something of a 'dinghy with a lid' and should provide really satisfying sailing with the right hand on the helm but she will also suit a couple, perhaps with two small children, to begin their cruising adventure. She's clean, well maintained (her painted hull is unblemished) and her motor has been serviced. She shouldn't be around for long at her bargain asking price. If only they built little boats like this today!
These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
