Broker's Comments

This is a very good example of this solid, swift cruiser/racer. The boat is well balanced under sail and suitable for experienced cruisers and novice sailors. I visited the boat on a bright day and it had a light and airy feel. It is clear that the current owners have proudly invested considerable time and resources in maintaining and improving this vessel. The boat's construction and classic lines reveal her traditional seagoing pedigree and there is a fascinating record of some of the extended cruising undertaken in her around UK and Norwegian waters.

In addition, the owners have included an impressive bundle of extras, including a nearly new inflatable dinghy, two fuel cans, life jackets and rescue sling and sufficient antifoul for one season.

These boat details are subject to contract.
