Broker's Comments

The X-79 is a very popular, lively, responsive performer. The current owner had to travel to Denmark to find her and has spent much money to make her a highly competitive boat, demonstrated by a very successful recent racing record. She is well sorted, race prepared and ready to go for next season. The latest RMW sails were new in summer 2004, only used for a few regattas and not used at all in 2005.
