Broker's Comments

Many times you will see the term "immaculate" or "superb" heading the description part of a listing, in this case it is well deserved by this lovely Vennekens Boom 40. The entire boat benefits from the care and attention given to her by the owners but don't take my word for it, look at the pictures! A proper engine room, aft and forward cabins, a cavernous saloon and a board-room size table; a spacious galley, seperate heads and enclosed wheelhouse complete the package. Viewing is a must, a real family cruiser so call Steve at Boatshed Suffolk on 01502 558055 to arrange.
