Broker's Comments

The Snapdragon is a popular small family cruising yacht with spacious accommodation and headroom, compared with most boats of this size. This particualr yacht had a new diesel engine fitted in 2004 and to date it has only 107hrs running time. She also has original gelcoat and deck finish - not a drop of Dulux in sight! Her general condition is good for her age, well maintained clean and tidy.
