Broker's Comments

This classic little cruiser has a lot going for her, with a boatyard refit completed in 2009 she has been much upgraded and is now just in need of some light cosmetic work.

With the current owner retiring from sailing she is therefore being sold as seen with everything included.

Pictures taken June 2014.
