Broker's Comments

Very unexpectedly back on the market this little ship has undergone a period of restoration that includes hull epoxy & paint, new anti foul, deck epoxy and non slip paint, exterior varnish and mechanical service and is almost ready for a world cruise. You could restore her back to a ketch however she has sailed across to Africa a couple of times as a sloop with no issues reported. With plenty of space on board you do not have to worry about getting under anybodys feet on a long term cruise. Her accomodation layout would lend herself to live-aboard, long term cruiser or charter boat and you can guarantee she is more than capable of going a few more degrees further north, or south than you really want to go! Realistically priced to sell viewing is essential to fully appreciate this boat. All pictures updated June '06. This boat has been viewed and photographed by Phil of Boatshed Gibraltar.
