Broker's Comments

A truly stunning classic yacht, from the water the boat looks stunning and has the performance to match. Ideal for the classic boat regatta racer or just simple cruising in classic style.
Below decks the originality of the boat has not been spoilt with over modernisation although practical improvements have been made for easy navigation and to make longer cruisers more comfortable.
She has been immaculately maintained over the years, being regularly surveyed and only removed from Lloyds +100 A1 register in the last 2 years.
