Broker's Comments

This boat can only be described as the jewel in Falmouth's crown. She is truly beautiful and the work carried out in the 2008 refit is to an exceptionally high standard.

It was a privilege to be onboard.

This Tidewater is also a very practical vessel with a lot of thought with regards to the layout. She is a very spacious, comfortable boat with plenty of headroom.

This boat would be a wonderful family boat and is also easy to handle for a couple. With its shallow draught and triple keels access to a variety of anchorages and creeks is possible as well as taking the ground.

This is a rare opportunity to acquire a superb example of a Maurice Griffiths Tidewater.
