Broker's Comments

On the day that I was sent by Mike to photograph this vessel the wind was a brisk F8 and rising. As I made my way along the marina, I witnessed a sailor coming in the opposite direction clinging on to the pulpit of another yacht that he was passing, in order to avoid being blown off his feet and into the water; I wasn't exactly looking forward to my appointed task! Unusually for me, rather than photographing the exterior first, I climbed aboard and made straight for the cabin and as the wind howled in the surrounding yachts' rigging and the GRP lightweights bucked and bobbed around, I entered an oasis of calm! The merest sound of lapping water disturbed the calm of this warm and dry yacht's saloon, and I immediately thought 'live aboard'. The evidence of her capabilities as a long distance cruiser were apparent when I came to record her ground tackle and general inventory but it was her sense of strength and calm that impressed me then and lingers with me now. If you are looking for a blue water cruising home, or simply a home on the water, seriously take a look at this one.
