Broker's Comments

This popular cruiser from the Design table of William Lapworth & Jensen Marine yard of Southern California, has very capable & swift sailing capabilities, with many recent upgrades to include new sail canvas, electronics & new air conditioning system. Current owner has left very little remaining to complete a full refit on this well appointed coastal cruiser with new inflatable dinghy. Must be seen to be appreciated.
