Broker's Comments

Built in aluminium by the British Aluminium Company, this boat has a solid feel and is obviously well cared for. She has been antifouled and polished in early October and is looking good. Epoxied from new. Sails are in good order and there is a removable forestay which is used for the No. 2 jib, storm jib and cruising chute. Boom roller reefing works well and the boat is easily managed under sail. Down below she is clean and tidy, with good access to the engine for maintenance. Owners reluctantly selling as growing family requires a larger boat.
