Broker's Comments

You want to blue water cruise in safety and comfort then this is the boat for you. A long keeler constructed in steel has everything necessary for long voyages. The current owners have completed two transatlantic crossings and lived aboard her for the past few years.

This is a special yacht. She is tough but kindly. She is equipped for ocean voyages with SSB radio and a lovely dripfeed stainless steel diesel heater that exudes warmth and comfort. She has an extensive sail wardrobe that will give the owner no excuse to always have an optimized sail plan for current conditions.

This is a boat that you will fall in love with. Everything is functional yet comfortable. A floating cottage exuding the best of traditional sailing. Her owner a former marine surveyor has kept her in tip top condition in every respect.
