Broker's Comments

Ever popular marque and a boat which has been with the same owner for a number of years. The Trapper 500 has a good ballast ratio and is well respected for a good turn of speed and windward performance. Internally she appears in good condition although an upgrade to some of the electronics would enhance her whilst externally she has a reasonably modern suite of sails and lines leading to the cockpit. The owner now finds himself short of time to sail her so she is ready for a new owner.

She has been used only occasionally for the last couple of years so will need some work to bring her up to spec once more and the price is set to reflect this.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
