Broker's Comments

looking at this very popular boat they still have it all strong build good accomadation Ideal for the family or just getting in to sailing you couldnt want a better design, the hull could do with a bit of a polish up as it is quite scratched, the decks have just been repainted blue and the antifoul all done so it realy is a sail away deal.
