Broker's Comments

This boat presents a great opportunity to own a truly well regarded classic motorsailor ketch. She is a very large 33' offering generous accommodation in elegant historic surroundings, and due to her style and build quality offers comfortable and safe passage for all from the luxurious galleon style interior on those rougher days when sailing seems too much like hard work.
This is one boat that certainly benefits from viewing...
