Broker's Comments

A very spacious homely boat. She has sailed mainly the Mediterranean, Caribbean and UK. Would make an excellent live aboard. She boasts a good suite of sails and an excellent engine room housing a 2010 BETA. Feathering prop new 2015. Gaff rigged Aluminium spars (2017) with standing rigging (2012).
