Broker's Comments

This yacht was designed and built by her owner. The design and construction were checked and approved by a marine designer and she was then constructed to a high standard; the boat remains in very good condition.
She sails very well and is a cabable seaworthy vessel. The interior is very spacoius with a lot of head room, a good sized aft cabin and comfortable saloon.
These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
