Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.
This is a lovely example of one of my favourite sailing boats in this class. She ticks all the boxes! Comfortable accommodation, excellent layout, deep cockpit, wide side decks great rig and this one is very well presented and has a decent sails wardrobe. She is simply ready to sail away and enjoy. Fabulous value for money. She will sell to the first viewer.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
