Broker's Comments

This model is a good example of its type with the advantage of a fairly new Yanmar engine that has done less than 250 hours.

The galley sports a virtually unused Neptune cooker grill and oven. The upholstery is clean and unmarked, the heads has the popular Jabsco toilet.

The rig is simple with just a rolling furler and a mainsail that both look in good condition to me.

The hull has been painted, not unusual for a boat of this age, and although lacking some of the modern refinements such as cabin heating and a pressurised water system, is nonetheless a vessel still potentially capable of coastal and cross channel passages.

We feel that she's well equipped with some opportunity for simple equipment and cosmetic enhancements to occupy her new owner.
