Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.
This beautiful steel schooner has got a first class hull designed of course by the eminent Nick Branson. All the Branson designed boats that I have had the pleasure to see have always been excellent. She has all the charm of a 100 year old vessel but none of the potential issues that age brings. This steel boat has beautiful lines and will take you to shores afar if you wish as she has good passage makeing capabilities. The accommodation is warm and stylish with lots of room. She has a relaxing feel to her. The deck is uncluttered with ample sidedecks to run around when you need to. The cockpit is graced by a beautiful tiller. You have to come and view this fabulous looking steel Schooner's design has been inspired by an 'Open Sea' fishing schooner that was based in America. A Norwegian man helped to bring his concept to reality. Now she can be yours too.
