Broker's Comments

This Sunbird 32 has an unexpected amount of space internally which would make extended stays on board very easy and the addition of a new Eberspacher in 2011 increases creature comforts. These were originally junk rigged vessels however arguably sail much better as sloops which this one is. She could do with some instrument modernisation and with attention to the external cosmetics will make a very tidy boat for the money.
