Long keel pocket offshore cruiser. One of only 12 built. She has a "Autohelm" self steering system, Roller Genoa, Slab main. Sails and canvas in good order. Deep safe cockpit. Traditional cabin layout. Hull GRP in excellent condition. Gas 2 burner hob and grill. Seperate heads. Excellent 10 HP Vetus diesel with 3 bladed folding prop. Full osmosis preventative treatment (Epoxy) 5 years ago. The decks have been recovered with TBS non-slip sheeting. This is a sound strong boat, She has a quality purpose built road trailer only 3 years old. Interior needs a little TLC. Please ask if you would like the manufacturers spec sheet to be emailed.
