Broker's Comments

This is a stunning example of Glastron's sporty weekend cruiser, ideal for the family or for racing around with friends. With her large cockpit space and second aft cabin she is perfect for entertaining friends and family comfortably.

This particular boat is almost certainly the best on the market and has had alot of money lavished on her over the past 18 months, with the fitting of a bowthruster, re-upholstering of the cabin and trim in suede, new duo prop, sterndrive housing, liferaft, batteries, Garmin chartplotter, Tek-Deck throughout the cockpit area and swim platform and much more. She has been meticulously maintained over the years and all the paperwork and manuals are present. The only thing that has not yet been done is a small repair to the helm seat.

Great listing Paul, She really is a superb example, She had a lot of the work done only last year here in Norfolk commissioned by the current owner who spared no expense on her whatsoever. As I recall he spent over 25k on her after buying her. Such a great shame the owner is no longer able to use her.
