Hull Finish - Copper Coat & Paint
She has a long keel with groundling plates so she will sit nice and flat on the ground. The coachroof and sidedecks have just been painted in a cream anti-slip finish. The cockpit is nice and deep and very large relatively speaking. The owner has had six people sitting down for dinner around the cockpit table. There is a proper cockpit tent as you will see from my photos. It is enclosed at the sides and has a door to get in as well. So it effectively makes for another room.

Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.
This Macwester Rowan 22 looks to be a good example of her kind. These are popular boats due to the excellent blend of traditional lines, large cockpit and great use of space below decks. There is a Macwester Owners Association too so that shows how popular they are and is a great source of information. This boat is ideal for both the seasoned sailor or those of you looking to ge into sailing on a good boat without breaking the bank. Do have a look at the video as the owner has provided some very useful information. It is also worth noting that she has a proper marine engine and marine gearbox and is aircooled. This should make this a very reliable engine.
