Broker's Comments

The Snapdragon 890 is a comfortable 5 / 6 berth family cruiser. Bilge keel, Wheel helm. Dark green hull and light green topsides.
With a 3m plus beam the interior feels very spacious. In 1994 the engine was replaced with a Volvo 2002b.
A lot of boat for the money.
Some cosmetic work is required to bring this craft up to its full potential.
