Broker's Comments

Sailed from Europe through Panama across the Pacific to Australia and finally to Thailand where she was laid up for a year, due to ill health of one of the owners. Sold to her current owner, who is in the process of refurbishing her, she is still a work in progress. The hull and topsides have been re painted, new teak and holly cabin sole is being fitted and she will have new navigation electronics. The standing rigging is only 8 years old, sails all less than 6 years old with some having been hardly used, ( 2 spare mains in good condition) and the engine starts and runs well without excessive smoke or vibration. Well priced for someone who wants a good sized comfortable, blue water cruiser.

**In the process of being refitted, including re painting, new teak and holly cabin sole, new electronics and a replacement generator **

UK Flagged.
