Broker's Comments

“Probably the best second hand boat you have never heard of” according to PBO. The Varne 27/850, bulit by Derek Weston, is an ideal family cruiser, which according to the current owner is fast, fun and stable. She has good levels of accommodation, both inside and out. The current owner has only had her for a few months, so she benefits from a recent survey, all new covers, and navigation equipment. Add to this the work he has done to the wood, head-linings and windows inside and she adds up to a very attractive package. (Visit the Varne Owners Association Website for reviews). This boat has been viewed and photographed by Chris Allan of Boatshed Essex. Register or log in to see 42 more photos of this boat. These boat details are subject to contract.
