Broker's Comments

Este barco es precioso. Todo el casco y el interior son de caoba, con cubierta de teca. En el verano de 2007 todas las maderas (interiores y exteriores) han sido tratado y varnizado. Al mismo tiempo la jarcia ha sido renovada, los pasacascos también y se ha instalado el deposito de aguas negras. El camarote de proa está utilizado para guardar las velas. Estas son todavía de origen, pero claramente han sido ligeramente utilizados. En cuanto al confort interior, el barco es típico para la época en la que se construyo, pero sí es autentica, incluso con algunos toques como el candelabrito marino. Es para enamorarse de la navegación a vela… Nota: se pueden considerar contra-ofertas.

This beauty is made of mahogany for the hull and interior and teak for the decks. Both inside and outside woods have been revarnished summer of 2007. At the same time, the standing rigging has been renewed, seacocks have been replaced and a holding tank installed. The forward cabin is used to store the sails. They are still the original ones, but clearly have been lightly used. In terms of comfort, the boat is typical of the time when she was built, but it is authentic, even with details such as the boat candlestick. Just fall in love with sailing… Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
