Broker's Comments

First impressions? Nice comfortable cruiser this – from the old school, with a nice aft cabin, “dinette” style saloon and a good roomy wheelhouse.

To me she seems to fit into the “gentleman’s motor yacht” category, with her elegant lines and classic look. The wheelhouse is well laid out and she has all the kit you’d need. The helm position looks pretty secure and the current owner says he tends to cruise at about 10 knots for economy and comfort.

Plenty of headroom, light and airy, she will be a great home from home for couples wishing to go on extended cruises, and with an air draft of only 9’6” with the radar lowered, she should fit through most of the inland waterways system in France. Leisurely trip down to the Med anyone?

The current owner had a full survey prior to purchase in June 2011, but a subsequent survey has shown significant problems with leaky windows, this has been temporarily repaired, so she is now not letting in the rain, but the windows will probably need to come out and be repaired or replaced. This is reflected in the price of the boat. The current owners have replaced all batteries and have also replaced one turbo charger with a reconditioned unit.

I recommend that you come and see for yourself – she is a lovely boat, and her pedigree makes her worth the effort!
