Broker's Comments

This is a beautiful, sleek looking yacht that is very easy on the eye.

Upper deck space is great for making your way forwards in a hurry and her cockpit is roomy, with plenty of seating and easy access to winches and her companionway.

Down below is a fairly conventional layout, with two large aft cabins and a smaller one in the bow. There is plenty of space, with ample seating in the saloon area, a decent sized galley and a large navigation area.

Some areas could do with a tidy up to really smarten her up, but she seems like a nice yacht that comes with plenty of equipment that could make her equally suitable as a family cruiser, or racing boat.

New keel bolts and seal January 2020!
