Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.
This must be one of the most highly specified Legend 29's with the most extensive sailing wardrobe of good sails that I have seen.
This is a beautiful sailing yacht, presented for sale in fabulous condition. She is not musty and there is still a lustre in the interior. The current owner has had her for many years and has spared no expense in updating her. She is ideal for first time sailors and seasoned yachtsmen too as she has very good sea keeping qualities. She is ready to go now for the new owner.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
