Broker's Comments

The Merlin 28 is a well proven bilge keeled family cruiser from the Westerly stable. A large aft cabin, aft heads compartment and comfortable saloon provides the accomodation layout that suits the modern cruising family. Clean deck layout and easily handled sloop rig makes for easy handling and she has the ability to take the ground - so desirable for Bristol Channel harbours.
This has been a well used yacht and she would benefit from a little upgrading in her galley, upholstery and perhaps one or two of her instruments, hence her keen asking price. However, she does benefit from recent standing rigging and mainsail.
These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
