It can be difficult sometimes to wax lyrical about a boat, when your scraping snow off your camera to try to get a shot of the rig. But this is a cracking little boat, which was completely refitted and re-engined a couple of years ago. Have a look at the sea-toilet, the only bottom it’’s seen was that of the highly skilled heads-fitter, to test the installation. The surveyor said “the hull is in good condition, no sign of osmosis - topsides polished - bottom sanded back to Gel coat and 5 coats of Epoxy applied. Sails all in good order - appeared hardly used”. Have a read of the review in the October 2000 edition of Sailing Today and if you are in the market for a fun cruiser, with all the main structural work done, plus a recently fitted engine, give me a call and I’ll arrange a viewing.
