Broker's Comments

A lovely example of this well known modern classic. This boat has been in the same family ownership since new. It was the 1974 Boat show yacht on the Marcon stand and has been superbly maintained ever since. The sails are almost new. she was re-engined in 2007. The yard trailer it stands on is included along with a tailored all over winter cover.
