Broker's Comments

Just re listed following a four month exterior refit by "Popye Marine" in Krabi Boat Lagoon and looking very smart, this Colin Childs designed ketch, with a little cosmetic interior work should make a very comfortable solid cruising home. Built in N.Z. starting in 1972 she didn't hit the water until 1982 when she was first registered. Her 1200 l fuel capacity should give her a range of around 1500 Nm under engine alone and her 1200 l of water should keep her crew happy on passage.
