Broker's Comments

It is genuinely hard to believe that this boat was built in 1977. Coming from such an esteemed design table you know you have a sound and seaworthy vessel but the levels of maintenance and upgrading are quite exceptional and whoever buys this boat will forever be convinced she is a much younger vessel. The current and previous owners have both spent generously and wisely on keeping her in tip top condition. Indeed it is only the demands of growing grandchildren and the need for a larger boat that brings this fine craft to market. These boat details are subject to contract.
