Broker's Comments

A very well cared for, clean and tidy example of the popular Westerly Merlin with bilge keels. Many great holidays have been had on-board this vessel and with her spacious accommodation and quality inventory she is an ideal family cruiser. Just returned from cruising the south coast she is presented in a sail-away condition. Just step on board and enjoy!
