Broker's Comments

Inspired by the design of an East Coast Shrimper, the Matelot 20 must be regarded as a proper little fishing/pleasure boat, with sails, rather than a true sailor. She benefits from a deep and safe cockpit, comfortably seating six adults, and a frugal and nearly new inboard diesel engine. She has a snug forward cabin with two berths, ideal to shelter from the summer squalls or enjoy a relaxing snooze after a picnic lunch. For weekending, a fitted cockpit tent extends the accomodation and with the addition of a couple of camp beds she could comfortably sleep four. When sailing takes your fancy a cutter headed ketch rig (with four small and easily handled sails) will provide lots of interest for young shipmates, but is also easily handled by the skipper alone. She benefits from a Hayling four wheeled/ braked road trailer with a new spare wheel and with her bilge plates she will sit comfortably on a drying mooring. All in all, an excellent daysailing or motoring pleasure boat with the capacity to weekend aboard and which is trailable to more distant waters.
