Broker's Comments

This boat sets the standard for a 'modern classic'. Beautiful lines straight from the famous board of Alan Buchanan, I defy anyone not to fall in love at first sight.
Not being a sailing man myself I rarely get exited over this type of craft, however this particular boat is warming me to the joys and excitement of sailing! The current owners enthuse about their exploits on this boat with so much enthusiasm it becomes infectious. They are both serious sailors and this boat has provided them with some amazing journeys and the tales that go with them! She has lovely lines and is amass with storage in the well thought out below deck design. The current owner and his daughter have lived aboard her for several years of late. The reason for this very reluctant sale is they are buying a boat more suited to permanent living aboard and they would love to feel she would be spending most of her time sailing.
