Broker's Comments

The Snapdragon 27 is built by Thames Marine. This example has had a Beta 20 hp engine fitted in 2002 and has had little use. Her sat nav is 5 years old and she has had a new toilet fitted recently. She has a good sized interior for a 27 ft boat. Forward she has 2 single berths which can be converted to a double, heads to port with a hanging locker opposite. There is a dinette which converts to another double berth and 2 single berths running aft with a galley to starboard. With her bilge keels she is capable of shallow draft exploration and has the ability to take the ground on beaches and cheaper drying moorings.
She requires a bit of TLC but is extremely competitively priced.
