Broker's Comments

The Pearson range are considered by many to be the finest of yachts built in the USA today. This model is a serious blue water cruiser which is constructed to a very high standard. She is fully equipped. She has been sailed, 2 handed, from NZ to the UK and is only for sale due to unfortunate health. This vessel a very safe cruiser and is also roomy throughout. The office holds further information which is available for viewing. A fantastic example, which is in sail away, ready to go condition.
