Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.
If your looking for a blue water cruiser or even a live aboard, this could be the boat for you. Just look at her spec and amount of accommodation space. She was designed by Christ Petre to be both rugged and attractive, She smells good, feels very homely and there is ample storage too.
This is a very solid and robust yet elegant lady. A real eye-catcher when under sail, if you want to go round the world this appears to be a sea worthy blue water cruiser that will and has done just that! And at a great price this is a must see. Viewings highly recommended.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
