Broker's Comments

Now I’m biased here – I am especially fond of little sailing boats “of a certain age” with twin keels. They let you mess about on the water, they are kind to you, they make allowances for you if you get it wrong and find yourself out in a gale when you didn’t really mean to…

Snapdragons fall into this category, you cannot help but return the affection they obviously feel for you, like a faithful spaniel, they just want to please you and give of their best. This little lady is no different - the saloon has a good sized table, the heads are surprisingly spacious for a boat of this size, and the fore cabin is very roomy indeed. There is a very well designed and made cockpit table, which will let you enjoy a leisurely lunch at anchor or a sundowner with a fair degree of style. She proves she is proper seaboat because she has a snug quarter-berth - an excellent place to catch forty winks, no matter which tack you are on!

The owners have sailed her to the Channel Islands, France and the West Country – she won’t win any races, but she won’t cost you a fortune, she will get you there, and she’ll look after you on the way!
