Broker's Comments

Practical family cruising yacht from the respected Van de Stadt designers.
The twin dinette layout is ideal for a family of four and both sides convert to berths.
The 8 metre Offshore has a good turn of speed and is a good boat for those people who wish to progress from dinghy or small club racers to something with sensible accommodation.

She is ready to sail away but has a couple of cosmetic jobs which will wait for her annual winter lay-up before they need attending to.
These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
