Broker's Comments

Merlin`s never cease to surprise me.Every time I see one I realise I have forgotten what a great boat it is.For a 28 footer the space is exceptional.It really does have the feel of a much bigger vessel.This is a well looked after boat, clean, tidy and with great upholstery.Nudging on to nearly 25 years old, she is ageing really well and has a good feel to her and you will not be disappionted.You don`t need to be a magician to realise just how good this Merlin is!
