Broker's Comments

Oysters need no introduction to anyone who knows about boats, their quality is legendary along with their new price, this example is not new, but has been continuously upgraded, presents exceptionally well for her age and represents very good value. Fitted with all "mod cons" she has circumnavigated twice already and is just waiting for a new owner to do it all again. Just relaunched following antifouling and anodes ( Oct 2015).

UK ( Guernsey ) Part 1 registration.
