Broker's Comments

Someone is missing out on the fabulous combination of performance, accommodation and inventory of this fine yacht!

This lovely looking boat has great lines and such performance potential!

A very comprehensive cockpit, along with a great navigation suite make this boat a potentially great club racer, or perhaps a family cruiser that could get you there before everyone else!

She has ample accommodation, with berths crammed in everywhere, yet feels reasonable spacious, with a "proper" chart table and decent sized galley.

She really is well equipped, with lots of thoughtful, modern additions. Additions, such as a spray hood and hot, pressurised water could really convert her into a lovely family boat, with racing potential when wanted.

This year she underwent a full professional hull peel, so her hull should be tip top under the water line.

All in all, a tremendously well equipped, multi-use and great looking yacht, that could just do with a bit of a tickle inside.

Stored ashore for winter and easy survey!
