Broker's Comments

If you fancy some extended blue water cruising then this could be the boat for you. She has a spacious, if not a little basic layout with accomodation for up to 10. The downside is that she does require some work to the mechanicals and the electrics but she has just been sailed from the Med to Pembrokeshire in up to force 8 winds so she is a capable little ship.With this boat though you will be getting a full compliment of nearly new sails which in itself are worth a considerable amount. The generator is also nearly new however its fuel supply requires attention. Come to view with an open mind because she has alot to give if you allow her. This boat has been viewed and photographed by Mike de Graaf of Boatshed Wales. Register or log in to see 49 more photos of this boat. These boat details are subject to contract.
