Broker's Comments

She is clearly a capable bluewater cruiser; well equiped with comfortable accommodation that includes a large saloon area, a fully-fitted galley and well designed navigation area.
The photographs reflect he current appearance, she needs a jet wash and the decks, possibly the hull, re-painting.
But do not be put off this really is not a major job on a steel yacht - a few weekends work and she will look great.
The interior looks fine - it's just the exterior that needs a good sort out!
Priced to reflect her current appearance, if you are looking for a well built ocean going yacht this one is well worth serious consideration.
