Broker's Comments

This Snapdragon 29 has had a lot of work done on it in the last few years including some extensive work on the engine. The interior has also had some money spent on it in the form of new upholstery with new foam, and in the forward berth some very nice made to measure sprung mattresses. The Galley area was also rebuilt to a very nice standard see photos. The Standing Rigging is also fairly new and the heads has been replaced - this may not sound particularly glamorous but it all adds up to some essential upgrades that will save her new owners a lot of money in the coming years. Further detailed information about the refurbishment work is available on request
