Broker's Comments

Great family sailing boat, current owner for 11 years, recently fitted "Easy Reef" main sail reefing with a new sail and sprayhood. The previous local owner had the boat for 15 years and fitted the engine and some very practical stainless steel work. The present owner has continually maintained and improved the boat, including foresail and mainsail travellers and re-galvanising the keel plate.
The large engine proves to be very useful in calm weather.
