Broker's Comments

This pocket sized family cruiser, has a lot going for her. Good sailing performance for her size, handles well with most of her lines leading aft to make solo or short handed sailing easy. Her distinctive smoked Perspex side windows give her a sporty appearance as well as plenty of light below and she has an uncluttered, easy to move around deck.

Down below the carefully thought out internal design makes maximum use of her interior volume. The open plan saloon has a light and airy feel with a double berth in the forward section & two singles in the saloon when needed. There is also a spacious double aft cabin. She has a good sized Nav table, a cooker with oven and grill as well as a separate heads compartment. Pretty amazing for a vessel under 27 ft.

The present owners have sailed and had lots of fun on her regularly over the last 7 years (along with their 4 children). They have looked after her well and made many improvements including a new mast, cooker plumbed in along with separate vented gas locker, more navigation equipment and an engine rebuild.

A good safe and steady all rounder, this well equipped and spacious bilge keeler is an ideal first coastal cruiser and creek crawler. Great for family fun.
