Broker's Comments

This classic Hartley design has been fitted out to a high standard and sailed extensively in various corners of the globe.

The vast majority of her fit has been hand-crafted - including her lovely main wheel. She has good accommodation and ample storage for extended periods at sea.

She has spent far too long on dry land and now deserves to be relaunched by a new owner.

She has various new items of kit and spares that will come with her.
