This looks like a good example of these very popular cruisers. She's really easy to get around!

She possesses acres of space - a lovely sized cockpit leads through brilliant French windows into an equally lovely sized saloon, with plenty of seating and room to relax.

Downstairs, there is a good sized and useful galley alongside a lower saloon, with more seating.

She has a good sized head compartment and lovely sized forward cabin.

Stowage abounds everywhere and there is a huge stowage under the cockpit, for your larger items.

She'd benefit from some improvements - there are jobs to do and maintenance to be done, but with some elbow grease, spit and polish, she really could be a show stopper again!

One of her engines needs work to restore it to running condition - we do not know to what extent.

This boat cannot be used for accommodation at Brighton Marina.
