Broker's Comments

Ok, so lets face it, you are not going to buy this boat for the beautifully finished interior, mass of complex state of the art electrical systems or the practical (if non existant) galley space. And as fore-mentioned sleeping arrangments are few and far between. However you must remember that this boat is and was part of quite a prestigas fleet of well designed boats. The new sails and standing rigging really seal this little package.
This First class 8M is a great little day sailer with an empty interior, so there is plenty of scope to install a couple of bunks, a cooker ect.. or just enjoy this purest sailing, without the worry of having to unblock that head, service the engine, top up the gas ect...
