Broker's Comments

An excellent little pocket cruiser, built and exhibited as the 1986 boatshow model. She was designed by Bruce Kirby, designer of the famous Laser range of dinghys. She could fairly be described as a comfortable fast cruiser suitable for coastal and offshore passage-making and offering great fun as a club racer.
