Broker's Comments

Macwester Wights are renowned for their solid construction. This centre cockpit ketch rigged version is no exception. Only for sale due to the owner's ill health, the boat has not been touched for five years, but prior to that considerable time and effort had been spent on her. The chainplates have been reinforced, new perspex windows installed, grab rails and drains removed and resealed etc. She now needs some extra electronics, lots of tlc and a good clean and polish to bring her back to life. These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price will be considered by a very motivated vendor.

This Macwester Wight has been personally photographed and viewed by Stephen Grimshaw of Boatshed Torquay. Click here for contact details.
