Broker's Comments

The Snapdragon 27 is a steady family cruiser. This particular example has a good recent survey and is in clean condition. Currently she is being used as a liveaboard and has been equipped accordingly. This boat gives you the opportunity of either living aboard, or with a little reorganising would make a good first cruiser.
These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
