Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.

A loved boat that has been owned by the owner since 1988. She has traditional lines and is a real eye catcher with her red hull. The boat has been updated over the years and she's a little bit sporty.

The interior has a lovely warm feel to it as enhanced by the teak. You can tell she has given the owner many years of pleasure and she has many more enjoyable years to offer another family.

Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
