Broker's Comments

This boat has had so many things replaced in the last year or so form the sprayhood to a new suit of sails and much more besides. She has been recently antifouled and is ready for the water. There is a surprrising amount of space for a boat of this length with loads of storage space in the cockpit lockers and bilge. A great boat.
