Broker's Comments

This well travelled, well equipped and well proven blue water cruiser is looking for new owners.

Easy to sail shorthanded & roomy enough for the whole family, she is comfortable to live on and makes for a great long term live aboard for travelling the world.

The centre cockpit with solid spray screen provides a well protected and safe environment to sail from, whilst the inmast main and furling Genoa allow you to stay there, when you want to. The decks are nice and wide and easy to move around.

The accommodation is light, airy and includes two en-suite cabins, the aft one is particularly comfortable and private, a large well designed galley and a roomy, raised saloon area. The forward facing nav station is very well equipped and, to complete the luxury, there is well over 6 foot of head room and plenty of storage.

Preparing for / completing the ARC in 2014, along with the owners efforts for continual maintenance and improvements, has left this vessel with a comprehensive and practical inventory of equipment. I think anybody taking this vessel on for long term exploring will be very pleased indeed.

* This vessel is not VAT paid.
