Broker's Comments

If you are looking for an out and out racer, one with a proven track record for bringing home the silver, then look no further, you've just found her! New top class racing sails, new rigging, new nav kit, even a new engine to get you back onto your berth (and into the yacht club bar) before the stragglers tie up! A recent (March 2004) survey and a list of her recent triumphs are available to peruse in our office. Furthermore, unlike a lot of racing boats, this one has been well cared for and is presented in very good order. Never a straggler around the cans, she shouldn't hang around for long at the asking price.
