Broker's Comments

The Cromarty 36 is a long keel ketch motor-sailer built by Blondecell of Lymington and designed by Wyatt Freeman (the same guys who designed the Fisher, indeed I believe that the hull is the same as that of the Fisher 36). So a good sea boat then!
First impression? She seems very much bigger than 36 feet!
She was designed for comfortable long distance cruising, and definitely has that “little ship” feel about her.
This particular yacht is beautifully specified, she has more kit than you could shake a stick at – including Raymarine instruments new in 2014, a Raymarine plotter fitted in 2016, radar, a MASSIVE anchor windlass, bow thruster, coppercoat, davits, Hood sails... I could go on, but why not ring me and we can go and have a look together?
