Broker's Comments

*** BSS certified until 11 Nov 2025 ***

This looks like a good example of these fabulous sports cruisers!

She has a really large cockpit with plenty of seats and great access to the (very clean and tidy) engine bay.

Her helm position is raised so the helm has a great view and there is lots of instrumentation - some of which could be updated, if desired.

Down below, she has ample space for a family, or group of friends for stays onboard - a good sized and practical galley lead on to the lovely saloon - nice, clean and tidy and it all converts into a huge bed, should it be needed!

She has an aft cabin which can be configured as a double or twin and this shares the heads compartment via Jack and Jill doors.

All in all, this boat should provide some real fun, thrills and style - whilst she's a little older, she can still hold her own amongst the modern stuff.
