Broker's Comments

A very nicely presented example of this popular bilge keel cruiser. Comfortable family accommodation with ample berths for six people, a good galley and heads and standing headroom for those 6 foot people! An ideal medium sized cruiser that has had a lot of upgrading, renewal and maintenance completed very recently. I love the Beta 20 HP engine that has only done 86 hours and looks like new.
