Broker's Comments

A good example of the very popular 285 cruiser racer with good interior space and although they were supposed to be 6 berth, they are really 4 plus 2 children, possibly 4 plus 1 adult. This particular boat has been out of the water for 10 years but the lifting keel was checked a couple of years ago and the engine has been run every couple of years. The owner has finally decided that he is not going to get around to using her again, hence the sale. The standing rigging is original and therefore will need replacing for insurance purposes.
