Broker's Comments

If you are looking for an easily managed, classic Buchanan to sail either 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 benefit from a separate and spacious heads with a sea toilet, but this can easily be restored into two extra berths.
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.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
