Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.
A beautiful example of a traditional yacht. She has fine lines and is a very seakindly sailing yacht. These boats are ideal for couples or single-handed sailing.
This yacht has been well maintained by her owners and she offers the comfort of a wooden boat with the practicalities of a GRP hull. Every inch of this boat is put to use in terms of interior design and she is ready for her new owner to take her to sea.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
