Voluminous does not begin to describe this boat. Large windows and ample headroom (even in the engine room) give this boat a feel of something much larger. The aft cabin could host a party in its own right and the main saloon and wheelhouse are generous in proportions. Excellent storage, aft of the galley is an area that is the marine equivalent of an attic. Ensuite main cabin aft and forepeak heads and shower for the forecabins. Good sized galley with full size cooker and fridge. The split levels of accomodation are both funtional and attractive. Nice period fixtures and fittings and the saloon carpet is so deep you will need to don a lifejacket.

4 burner gas cooker

Broker's Comments

A typical gentlemans cruiser retaining much of her 60's origin.Designed and Built by a famous south coast yard using a well proven construction method using double diagonal mahogany. The paint finish is OK as is the bright work but a vessel of this age and type will always need upkeep. She has pleasing lines and her beam and freeboard give her a spacious and airy feel throughout. You could live aboard in some style and comfort and make serious passages as required. She has just come from East Anglia under her own steam with no problems.
