Broker's Comments

The GK 29 is a popular cruiser/racer with loads of space both on deck and down below in the saloon and cabins. With wide side decks and a large foredeck area she feels safe to walk around. The cockpit will easily seat four people and on this vessel all the lines run back to the helm so she is easy to sail short handed if required.
A spacious cruiser for family and friends with a good turn of speed if you want a bit more excitement!
This particular vessel could do with a little attention to the upholstery but she has recently been ashore and had new headlinings fitted in the saloon, has been freshly anti-fouled and is ready to sail.
The vendor is open to offers.
