Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
This Westerly Solway Ketch sailing boat is ideal for families or taking friends on holiday as she has two heads, lots of space, and a deep, safe centre cockpit too. A great boat, sea kindly, big enough to live on and at a price that will not break the bank too.
