Broker's Comments

Basic she may be but in great shape for and ready for a weekend setting her up just the way you want her. An attractive Swift 18 that has the safest hull around even when swamped so ideal for a starter .
Surprisingly tidy below with a new bit of headlining and some nifty carpet has made her look like new.
Great rig that has also had new halyards and some standing rigging replaced over the last few weeks.
The sails are in store and I will add pictures as soon as possible.
Comes with outboard and a trailer so all you need is the water !!! But, you will need to sort the electrics if you want some lights etc.
