Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.
This is a suberb looking Birchwood 29 that appears to have been loved by her owners. She has a great looking semi-displacement hull and was built when the emphasis was on strength as well as performance. Her interior woodwork looks to have a good lustre too. She is ideal for families who want to enjoy cruising and would make an excellent boat for either the seasoned sailor or a newcomer.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
