Broker's Comments

Preliminary Details: awaiting confirmation by owner. If you are looking for a easily managed, classic Buchanan to sail single handed or as a couple, then look no further than this very pretty Spartan. Don't even think about buying a restoration project when this is available, restored and ready to go, for a fraction of the re-build cost. She is two berth but does have a separate and spacious heads with a sea toilet. The hull is largely original but the restoration included additional framing. The deck and coachroof are all new and substantially engineered. The mast is now deck stepped and has been designed to be easily lowered by two people.
