Broker's Comments

This yacht feels every inch a thirty footer! She has been lightly used in current ownership and has been upgraded in her domestic comforts by the addition of a complete cockpit cover and Eberspacher blown air heating system. Whilst not new, her sail wardrobe is perfectly serviceable and with her long fin keel and easily worked deck space she is a capable and comfortable offshore passage maker. Her motor was designed for ship's lifeboat service ie. stand by until required, then run faultlessly until no longer required! Being a long stroke thumper, she is the CORRECT HP for this displacement yacht. A recent report in a well known yachting comic commented unfavourably on the heaviness of the helm. We believe this to be journalistic overstatement and perhaps an unfair comparison with modern lightweight flyers - these yachts can go anywhere, and have done!
See "more photos" to view 39 internal and external photos of this vessel. Photographs, analysis and comments by Alan Coy of Boatshed Wales.
Note: This yacht has been recently reduced in price as the owner now has one yacht too many! She represents outstanding value at the new asking price, but a close offer might be considered.
