Broker's Comments

A popular twin keel yacht, this boat has been refitted with new standing rigging and roller reefing in 2009. She has a fully battened mainsail, and spinnaker was rerigged in 2009. Spinnaker is included.

Engine is in good condition, starts easily, and runs well.

She has always wintered ashore, and has an undocumented but regular service history.

All electronics have been upgraded since 2009 including dsc, vhf and chartplotter.

A teak inlaid cockpit is well maintained, and she is very dry. She has a solar fan up for'd which keeps her well aerated.

She was surveyed in 2007, and also moisture tested in 2010. Both yielded a positive review.

Young families in particular could have a lot of fun with this vessel - not forgetting lifejackets!
