Broker's Comments

This is, without a doubt, a beautiful and elegant looking ketch!

I love it when a boat like this comes along and I get the chance to appreciate her graceful lines and muse over her classy vintage features.

On the face of it, she seems in really lovely condition - of course there is some paint work that needs doing and the decks are worn, but she seems strong underfoot and I think she has a great future.

Her interior is light, bright and airy, with really flexible accommodation and plentiful stowage.

In the right hands, I think she's make a great blue water cruiser - someone is definitely in for a treat!
