Broker's Comments

A truly unique and one-off schooner. On looking around the boat it is clear to see the current owner has made significant investment in improving and maintaining the boat. She is also superbly well equipped in all areas making her an ideal liveaboard or long range cruiser.

Her rigging and sails are all in excellent condition and this is matched by the quality of the cabin areas both the spacious aft owners cabin and the main saloon and galley area.
