Broker's Comments

Well designed by Van de Stadt and strongly built in Germany, these yachts have been very popular due to their good sailing performance, strength and comfort.

Rigged for short handed sailing, the wheel steering is fitted with an auto-pilot, the solid perspex spray screen offers good protection, lines lead aft, the main sheet traveller is placed up out of the way and the genoa sheet winches are self tailing Lewmar 30s.

Surprisingly roomy down below with generous sized berths and good headroom, there is a decent sized forward facing Nav table, a heads compartment with two doors for privacy and plenty of storage throughout, providing a good living area.

Although a little cosmetic refurbishment is required, there’s a lot of potential in this substantial yacht and she’s definitely worth a taking a look at.
