Broker's Comments

Boats as gleaming, clean and well looked after as this don't come along very often! She looks white, shiny and in exceptional condition.

You only need to look at the photos, videos and virtual reality to be able to see for yourself just how lovely looking and feeling this boat is.

Her accommodation is laid out in a really clever configuration, maximising space and live-ability on board. She's extremely light, airy and spacious and her galley and dining area aft offers much more space than the norm, for a boat of this size.

Her smaller and less powerful engines offer much greater economy and look very nice, tidy and clean - as she does everywhere you look!

If you're after one of those rare, cherished boats that seems almost as good as new, then do come and take a look at this one - we're sure you won't be disappointed!
