Broker's Comments

This is a well made boat in a reasonable condition, although she could do with a bit of a polish. She has a major advantage as she has had lots of new equipment added and the electrics have recently been serviced.
She is an ideal starter boat for fast cruising or fishing and has a good sized cockpit for the size of vessel.
