Broker's Comments

Presently undergoing major refit and will be relaunched with pale blue hull paintwork, see photos for work progression
A truly lovely little yacht offering traditional features and charm with some modern adjustments. The interior is especially nice and the cabin stove is a great feature. Apparently quite fast under sail she benefits from the practicality of a cutter rig.

Refit to include new galley with log oven.
Interior and repaint.
