Broker's Comments

The transformation of this boat since I saw it two years ago is truly amazing. It has undergone a complete professional refit and is now a blue water cruiser fully refurbished and ready to go on a long ocean passage.
It is a well constructed and nicely fitted out craft, heavily built and its weight and long keel make it very seaworthy.
The internal steel has been epoxy coated and three coats of epoxy and two coats of antifouling applied to under water parts. The topsides have been resprayed with Awlgrip.
The interior accomodation is roomy, well laid out and comfortable. A lot of thought and attention to detail has gone into this boat.
A change of plans however is the reason for sale.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
