Broker's Comments

Norfolk Broads cruiser for sale in the south of France. Boatshed Midi Canals is pleased to offer this Porter & Haylett Connoisseur 1275 for sale.

Built for a private owner and now for sale by it's third owner our client has owned the boat for 15 years and cruised the French waterways extensively. Professionally maintained and benefiting from a really solid terrace deck but still able to open the saloon roof a few feet to increase ventilation. Comfortable cruising with family or friends. For more information and appointments to view, please contact Graham WHARMBY, your Boatshed broker at Boatshed Midi Canals
