Broker's Comments

This boat certainly does not feel to be over 30 years old! Down below she is roomy, clean and comfortable. The heads compartment is so spacious you could be forgiven for thinking you were aboard a much larger yacht.

Her side decks are wide and clear, and the coachroof tapers nicely while still giving around 6 feet of headroom in the saloon. This boat is ideal for family cruising yet has enough turn of speed to be a worthy competitor at club level.

She has been owned and sailed for 15 years by a conscientious and proud owner – she is well up together and very clean and tidy down below. She has the benefit of being re-engined some 10 years ago, and the Yanmar unit looks as though it was put in yesterday! The owner carries out all his own servicing, and as you might expect, he is fastidious about his boat and her upkeep!

Her sails are not very old at all, and look to be well cared for. All in all I get the impression of a boat that has been used and loved, and I hope she will find a home with a new owner who will look after her as well as the present custodian has!

Overall, this is a cracking little cruiser with plenty of accommodation and enough speed to make fast passages or be worthwhile taking in the odd race around the buoys, but just as much at home as a family cruiser.
