Broker's Comments

This is the first Spirit 28 I have seen, and they certainly look to be a well built and capable looking cruiser.

This one needs a bit of tlc but she is realistically priced to reflect this.
It would not take a huge amount of work get her back in commission and would be well worth the effort.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
