Broker's Comments

This Cygnus 32 has been built and fitted out to a very good standard, the build quality is clear to see. The Cygnus hull was fitted out by Mr M Pipe a highly respected local shipwright working from Priors in Burnham on Crouch.
The spacious wheelhouse also contains a seating area and the galley.
The interior is fitted out with a large saloon table that converts to a double bed when required. The forecabin has two single beds and there is a third single in the main saloon.
The Ford Sabre engine is economical and appears well maintained.
A lot of new gear has recently been added to this boat including the Mikuni heating system.
Overall she is well maintained, well constructed and very nice indeed.
