This is a beautifully constructed boat. The 9ft 3in width gives plenty of room without the unwieldiness of larger wide beams.
Built for cruising as well as living aboard, she has a generous cruiser stern with a superb canopy. The massive forward well deck has a solid roof and a removable cover with panoramic windows making a wonderful conservatory.
The paintwork is in very good condition, but the roof paint will need some attention. This boat benefits from 2 pack epoxy blacking below the waterline, which should be good for a few years to come.
The hull is protected by 12 sacrificial anodes and a galvanic isolator
Heating and hot water are provided by a Mikuni boiler, with radiators throughout the boat. When cruising the hot water can also be provided by an engine calorifier and when shore power is available an immersion heater can also be used.
