Broker's Comments

The Sarum 28, designed by Robert Tucker and constructed in Aluminium, is an attractive and spacious fin keeled yacht. This boat has been well cared for and is in good condition. The hull below the water line was grit-blasted and 2-part epoxy treated in 2002. She has a comprehensive inventory with up to date instrumentation and a good set of sails.
