Broker's Comments

This is a very tidy and well maintained/serviced boat, which benefits from recent rigging and sails, and professional gel coat treatment in 2007. She is a great family coastal cruiser, with a very open cabin design, so plenty of room for everyone. She has been with her current owner since 1991, and has cruised the Solent, Normandy, the West Country and the Channel Islands. She has an excellent range of equipment included in the specification. Altogether a solid dependable boat that will serve you well.
