Broker's Comments

If you are looking for a compact little motor sailor with character, take a look at this one. Built in steel with rockwool insulation she has been nicely fitted out internally with quality woodwork.She has an easily handled junk ketch rig, with electric winch to raise and lower her main sail. The mizzen is handled from her cockpit where tiller steering may be utilised although her main controls are in the wheelhouse. Her motor was replaced in 2002 and has logged less than 900 hours and starts and runs smoothly. Her layout might not suit everyone however, as her only berths, following a move of the galley from the wheelhouse to the saloon, are the two quarter berths. If this is not an issue for you then she is well worth a closer look. Cosy, characterful and capable - that is our Heather Bell!
