Broker's Comments

If, you are anything like me, you probably spend the occasional, idle moment musing about the day when you sail off into the sunset, never to be seen again on this rain sodden turf.
Well, this is a boat that I might muse about doing it on.
She was designed by David Thomas to be the first of a new breed of medium displacement, high volume, easily handled steel cruising yachts. David Thomas? You know, he of Sigma, Elizabethan and Sonata fame, amongst many, many more.
She feels enormous on deck and below, a result of the enormous 14 foot beam.
There is storage space for everything, everywhere, all accessible. This boat is built for Blue water cruising, still providing the long distance yachtsman with nearly all of the comforts of home.
