Broker's Comments

This example is really in excellent condition and has been professionally upgraded irrespective of cost. This is an ideal starter Yacht for a family or crew starting out who want to buy a Yacht that requires no expense spent on her and ready to go.

She also benefits from a good Survey in 2017 where the Surveyor summarised as follows:

She "is a good example of this popular and safe family cruiser. She benefits from
a good-sized interior and has been properly maintained by her enthusiastic and
capable owner"
She "is safe to put to sea and should continue to provide her owner with many
more years of happy sailing."

There may be an option to secure a mooring on the River Exe.
