Broker's Comments

This Draco 3000 Big Fish looks in very nice order throughout. Built in Norway in the late 70's they are a solidly built flybridge cruiser suitable for both river and coastal use.
Recent upgrades include the new upholstery in the cockpit and also on the flybridge. A new 3D fish finder and the good sized cockpit make it ideal for a spot of fishing - as the model name would suggest!
