Broker's Comments

Sailed from Europe through Panama across the Pacific to Australia and finally to Thailand where she has been laid up for a year due to ill health of one of the owners. She will need a bit of TLC before resuming her travels, but the basics look OK, Hull looks OK, standing rigging is only 8 years old, sails 6 years old and the engine is estimated to have done less than 3,000 Hrs. The A/C, Washing machine, water maker, and fixed generator need attention, but other than that it is reported that all else was working at the time she was laid up. Well priced for someone who wants a good sized comfortable, blue water cruiser and is prepared to do a bit of work. She would also lend herself well to charter with a master cabin and the potential for 8 single berths.
