Broker's Comments

The MG Spring 25 is an innovative design, having spacious accommodation for its size and adopting the lower drag features of winged keel technology. These boats are equally suitable for competitive club racing and fast family cruising. For a 25' boat the accommodation space is very good, providing six berths, including a roomy double aft cabin and separate Heads with a vanity unit. The saloon is open and airy and there is a comfortable navigation station and galley area.

This boat was Northshore's demonstration boat and was featured in the June 1991, edition of Practical Boat Owner. The boat has been well maintained, including the engine and has benefited from numerous upgrades over the last decade. For anybody looking for a versatile boat in this range, it is a great option for either cruising, racing or both.

These boat details are subject to contract.
