Broker's Comments

This boat has been viewed and photographed by Chris Allan of Boatshed Essex. Designed by the well respected Swedish designer Knud Reimers and built in Gothenberg, this yacht is not for the faint hearted. The mahogony hull is often mistaken for GRP, such is the quality of the finish, and if you want to race her you can re-fit the mizzen, but be warned she is a seriously fast yacht. The sidedecks are wide, the foredeck is spacious, and the cockpit is large enough for six to eight adults. As you pass through the companionway down one step, there are two good-sized quarter berths, which run under the cockpit. Down some more steps and to port the navigation station, starboard the galley, and in front a large saloon with full standing headroom. Further forward a seperate heads compartment and a useful wet locker, which you pass on the way to the forward cabin.

The decks have been covered to seal the original decks which were leaking. I feel that she know needs an investment in time and money to get the decks repaired/replaced new sails, etc. Register or log in to see 41 more photos of this boat. These boat details are subject to contract.
