Broker's Comments

This yacht has only had two owners from new, her present owner for the last 24 years. She is a fast and comfortable cruiser racer with an impeccable racing pedigree that can show a clean pair of heels to many more common marques. She is well able to win around the cans, as she regularly does with her extensive and up to date sail wardrobe, but she is also set up for shorthanded sailing with all lines led aft. Her owner has cruised her regularly to France and Ireland from South Wales and reports that she is a comfortable and fast passage maker. With her extensive sail wardrobe, new engine, new bottom treatment (preventative epoxy coating), new rigging and instruments it would seem that a new owner simply needs to add water!
In fact, even that has been taken care of; she's in commission and ready to go now!
