Broker's Comments

The UFO 27 is well regarded as a family cruiser with a turn of speed to also be a competitive club racer.

This particular example has been the subject of an extensive renovation over the last couple of years by the current owner. All the hard work has been done and she is now ready for the new owner to complete the re-fit to their own taste and requirements. A real blank canvas!
