Broker's Comments

Fantastic opportunity to own a well documented ocean cruiser that has been to South Africa and back before returning to quieter life in the Solent.
Extensive works have been carried to the Iroko hull over the last few years and she has been ashore in the yard.
She requires a few small jobs to get her ready to put back in the water but is not my any means a full restoration project more a case of just finishing her off.
She also has a Dickinson bulkhead solid fuel stove with removable Charlie Nobel.
Once these jobs have been carried out she will give you and ideal long distance single or short handled cruiser.I have a full list of her inventory so contact me if you require any more information.
