Broker's Comments

A decent example of a hard top Foster Classic 27 powered by a single 1.8 Thorneycroft diesel engine to a shaft drive, she just needs a little cosmetic tlc to get her back to tip-top condition.

She has a nice interior with cream upholstery and a light and airy cockpit with glass lockable patio doors. Bench seating to the rear and further seating for the helm and navigator.

Below, there is a dinette on the port side in the open plan cabin, converting into a double berth if required. Galley on the starboard with the added extra of having a good size 12v fridge freezer in the cockpit.

A further 2 berths in the bow, forming a v-berth with infill cushion to make a double.

An ideal family cabin cruiser perfect for the inland waterways.
