Broker's Comments

A true Blue Water yacht, this roomy and well built ketch has been conscientiously maintained by her professionally qualified owner.

The cockpit is deep and safe, her rig looks strong and seamanlike, and her sheer presence exudes reliability.

Down below the saloon is light and airy but the cabins feel snug and secure. The woodwork is well finished and there is ooooodles of storage space. The owner brought her home from Spain single handed – which just goes to prove that even on a big sturdy yacht like this you don’t need a cast of thousands to crew her.

I didn’t have the courage to descend the ladder that leads down into the cavernous lazarette – I have a wife and children you know, and they are expecting me home for supper.

Give me a ring here at Boatshed Port Solent, and we’ll get along and see her.
