Broker's Comments

A good and original example of this popular river cruisers in original gelcoat.
She has a pump out toilet with holding tank, new canopy,stainless steel cooker. The upholstery and interior woodwork are in excellent condition as is the exterior gelcoat with no signs of damage.
She has a current BSC and is Broads licensed until 2013.
Very much ready to enjoy with no work or cosmetic "tidying" needed.
