Broker's Comments

This is a tidy and sturdy yacht with a reasonably full inventory. She would make a perfect starter yacht for someone requiring a proper sailing yacht from a pedigree designer.

She is pretty roomy down below and will sleep five at a push. She is easily sailed alone or by a couple.

This boat has been viewed and photographed by Steven of Boatshed Falmouth .
