Broker's Comments

This is your chance to own a classic cruiser with an impressive history of long distance cruising and ocean racing.

She is the deeper keel version with skeg hung rudder and lots of berths. She comes with brand-new sails, new running rigging, has been well maintained and is ready to sail-away.

Pictures taken June 2014.
