This performance sailboat is in great condition and has been very well maintained by the present owner.

She has undergone a £25,000 refit including new standing rigging and sails, has been dry sailed with all gear stored ashore off the vessel whilst not in use. The sails have always been rolled rather than flaked giving you the idea of how careful the present owner has been.

Overall she presents a fantastic opportunity to have a fully race ready, competitive boat at a great price.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
