Broker's Comments

My first impression of this boat, was how clean, well organised and up together she was. This is a classic stiff sea boat with a great pedigree, a joy to sail. The original owner carried out a major refit in 2003/4. Much new equipment was installed in 2009, including a new Beta Marine 10hp diesel engine, new gear box, shaft and propeller, new batteries, tanks, and full rewiring. The present owner refurbished the interior and carried out modifications to the rigging, including slab reefing, in 2010/11. All controls are led back to the roomy cockpit; easy for single handed sailing.
