Broker's Comments

This lady certainly does not look her age. She was immaculately clean when I visited and the owner keeps her like that. The carpets looked almost new and there certainly wasn't anything I could pick fault with. While I was on-board the owner started the engine first time and I have to say it was a pleasure to list this boat.

If you are looking for a family cruiser you don't want to look much further.

Sept 2015 Update:-
Hull cleaned and antifouled
New anodes fitted to hull trim tabs and engine legs
Leg serviced inc new bellows also (cleaned and antifouled)
Engine serviced inc new oil and filter
Boat cleaned throughout inc carpets
2 new marine batteries
New Macerator pump
