Broker's Comments

This is a very tidy looking Merlin and a great example of these popular Westerlys.

If you add her 2018 interior refurbishment, which really lifted the accommodation below and made it a pleasant, airy and light space to be in, to all the thoughtful changes made and equipment fitted, then you may agree that she definitely seems a lovely boat for her price.

If you'd like a proven family cruiser, that has a lovely interior and has been looked after over the years, then this may be the one for you.

VAT exemption certificate held and documentation back to build, including builder's certificate.
