Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.
What a beautifully elegant boat! A modern day sailor with a classic feel which oodles character hence the name!

Stepping aboard she feels spacious for her size and would be a comfortable sail for a family or group of friends. Loads of storage space in the lockers and the enclosed spray hood/tent is perfect for the British summer days when the weather is not quite as expected. The current owner bought her new and is only selling as they have bought a larger boat, they have taken care of the boat as can be seen from the photos.

If you're not already sold on the boat then surely the motorised trailer could convince you? No need to hook up to a vehicle for launching and the remote control means she can be maneuvered with millimetre precision, making you look a professional on the slipway. The solar panel charges the batteries for the trailer so no need for electrical connection.

All in all a perfect boat for getting out on the water and easy to launch and recover!
