Broker's Comments

If a boat could be a piece of fruit then this Humber 34 would be a peach. For a lady approaching her thirtieth year she is looking far, far younger than her years. This boat has been looked after with a passion and is in absolutely immaculate condition. Anyone who appreciates quality will see that this is one of the true greats of the boating world and one with a reputation of sea keeping
abilities second to none. It is easy to believe that this solid, beautifully built boat will handle anything that could be thrown at her with ease.
If you are looking for one of these neo classic craft then you must come and see this one, but do it soon because she will not be here for long.
