The layout of double fore peak and twin settee berths obviously misses the ever useful quarterberth, but then you do get such enormous cockpit lockers instead.

Broker's Comments

If this was a site selling cars I would now be eulogising about classic Aston Martins, drop-head Bentleys, Austin Healeys and the like. Why, you may ask, and the simple answer is that the SHE 31 is of similar thoroughbred status in the yacht world. This boat is a classic "pocket rocket" from the hallowed drawing board of "Sparkman & Stephens".
A perfect rival to the Contessa 32. In need of some TLC as would any lady of her years, but a thoroughbred through and through.
This, the 9.5 Traveller, shares the same virtues as the Contessa, that of excellent handling, all-weather performance and high ultimate stability, as well as being exceptionally pretty.
As many have said, "the epitome of good IOR design.
