Broker's Comments

The lovable Snappie 27 Mk II is still a firm favourite as she offers safe family sailing with heaps of room below in the Cabin and a deep aft cockpit.
She has been painted but is generally in very good condition.
Small draft from the bilge keel that will allow this Snapdragon 27 to be taken almost anywhere.
She has been on the south coast for a number of years and has been used purely for cruising, the owner is selling as he finds little time to get out on her.
Easy access for viewing as she is currently on a marina mooring on the south coast.
Call me if you require any further details or you would like to come and see her.
