With her racing pedigree giving lead to a beamy hull the accomodation is very generous and the abundance of varnished timber below gives a wonderful feeling. Surprisingly well appointed for a racing yacht you could cruise her in some comfort.

Broker's Comments

Successful racing history and still competetive today. The varnish work is a credit to the owner and the overall condition of the boat is above average for the age, with a few marks as one would expect from a boat that is used competitively today. Available now for someone wanting a performance racer/cruiser at sensible money I would strongly urge a visit to view her.
