Broker's Comments

This is a lovely example of this beautiful class of racing yacht. She qualifies for the Classic category and you will rgularly find European regattas of 60 plus Dragons to compete in. She benefits fron a brand new mast and has always been professionally maintained and stored ashore,under cover. Originally commissioned for the Spanish Olympic Team and then raced extensively at international level. Winner of many Dragon Trophies. All control systems have been upgraded. Good trailer with all over transport cover. Boats like this are a rarity. These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
