Broker's Comments

The beatifull lines of the classic designer Van De Stadt are as evident on the splinter as they are on the larger rebels. He designed some excellent sailing vessels and this is one of them. In need of some remedial work, nearly all cosmetic, she will make a fantastic first cruiser for somone willing to do some simple wiring and woodwork.
