Broker's Comments

The Snapdragon 24 has an amazing amount of accommodation for her size. Easily handled under sail or power, she would suit a couple or young family. She is still the most popular and sought after Snapdragon. Good cabin layout with good headroom and a large saloon and table makes longer stays on board enjoyable. She has a full boat safety certificate until April 2013. There is extensive paperwork regarding her history, equipment handbooks etc.
