Broker's Comments

In the world of boat sales It is rare to find one of these Classic designs that is still mostly in original condition, this example has recently been the subject of much attention, with her new teak decks and woodwork varnished she is looking as pretty as a picture.
Down below there is plenty of space and acres of solid Teak surrounding the large wheelhouse/galley and separate saloon.
The owner, an experienced sailor and Engineer, who decribes her as a long distance livaboard ready to go anywhere, has updated many of the on board systems and would consider part exchanging her for a smaller yacht.
She has just had both her heads compartments completely refurbished and the saloon now has the option of having the settee convertable to another large double.
