Broker's Comments

This boat has been viewed and photographed by Paul of Boatshed Chichester. Register or log in to see 51 more photos of this boat.
You know, it's always nice to go on other peoples boats, but when I stepped on the teak of this one I knew it was something special. Lots of Stainless Fittings and large decks in beautiful condition. As I went below only one word came to mind....WOW!!!
I made my way to the controls and sat in the sumptuous leather. Leaning forwards I put my hand on the morse controls and I could feel the roar of the two mighty Volvo's pushing the bow through the monstrous waves. I watched the spray coming aft (no wiping your eyes here).......Wake up Paul this boat is not even in the water yet!!!
Moving on through the accomodation I experienced the luxury of the two double en suite cabins the large saloon and the magnificent galley, all with deep pile carpet. Venturing down to the engine room I got my biggest surprise!. I have never seen engines looking so pristine. It's a pity our NHS Hospitals are not cleaned by the same person!

If this is the type of boat that could be your pride and joy, look no further. These boat details are subject to contract.
