Broker's Comments

This is a lovely, well cared for yacht. She is in super condition below and a credit to the owner. She is spacious, light and airy and ready to go.

She has a number of nice additions such as a fridge and shore power that were not standard at the time of build. Definitey, a nice comfortable, homely, yacht.

The main headlining is wood, as on a lot of Merlins. Parts of the minor side headlining needs attention because of the droop.

She is a bilge keel version, so, a very practical yacht.

Shame they don't still build them.

A perfect yacht for a family taking their first steps in cruising.
