Broker's Comments

The Snapdragon 890 is a good sized boat with plenty of room down below and a reasonably spacious cockpit though the wheel steering does take up some of that room (the wheel itself is quite small). This example is currently ashore and has had the topsides and underbody been tidied up and new anode fitted. Above decks, the running rigging and sails require attention and the interior is in need of refurbishment. With that done she once again should provide many happy years of sailing to the new owner.
