Broker's Comments

This lovely boat has come onto the market just 2 months after it was acquired. The current owner is suddenly having to cope with a very serious illness in the family and he needs to focus on only this task. The boat is therefore being put on the market at a very reasonable price.

This is a blue water cruiser for the discerning sailor. This particular boat has participated in the ARC and every Warrior owner I meet praises the toughness and seaworthiness of these Bill Dixon classics. This is a rare opportunity to acquire this boat ready to sail into or out of the Med from her Gibraltar base.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
