Broker's Comments

Classic lines – very much like the Contessas, small Nicholsons, Hustlers, that sort of yacht, a seamanlike and elegant fast cruiser.

This little yacht has been well looked after and carefully refurbished over recent years – her hull has been slurry blasted to remove old anti-fouling, and the topsides are in very good order – nice and shiny! Down below she is cosy and nicely finished. She is nearly 35 years old, so don’t expect corian worktops and halogen lighting, but what you do get is a feeling of being as snug as a bug in rug!

She has a new mainsail, new UV strip on her genny, new guard wires, new main halyard, new gas system, decent upholstery and all the essentials – sprayhood and dodgers, wind generator.

Give me a ring here at Boatshed Port Solent, and we'll arrange to meet up and look her over.
