Broker's Comments

This SCOD has been in the same ownership since 1984 when the present owner had all fixings renewed and she has undergone regular and extensive maintenance since then. She has recently had her summer spruce up and re-varnish and looks a picture. She is a sound and very dry example of these excellent boats from the pen of Charles Nicholson and is probably one of the finest examples of her type you could find.
The owner is looking to get a bigger boat so she is offered at a realistic price and needs to be viewed, she is well worth it.
These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
