Broker's Comments

This is not a boat to be missed. The spec of this boat is huge.The engine has just been reconditioned and needs running in, and comes with 12 month warranty. The running rigging was replaced in 2010 and the standing rigging inspected . The instrumentation includes radar gps and autohelm interfaced plus all the instruments that you would expect on a much more expensive craft. This boat must be seen to fully appreciate what great value this boat represents.
