Broker's Comments

This is a yacht for the serious blue water yachtsman. She is built of steel and designed specifically for ocean passages, which she has completed successfully.
She is presented in good order and is ready to go to sea. The owner has spent a lot of money in maintaining her and upgrading over the years he has owned her.
She is a robust sea boat yet is easy to handle with all control lines leading aft to the cockpit. In adverse weather conditions the wheelhouse gives good protection.
The accommodation comprises of 3 cabins. The master cabin is aft with a double berth, access is via a passage from the main saloon. The passageway also has lockers with ample storage room for ones tools. The main saloon is comfortable with ample seating and a well equipped galley. The cooker and microwave are due to be replaced. In the forward cabin there are 3 separate berths. The heads which are to port contains a shower unit. There is an engine room which allows good access for maintenance.
If you are in the market for a long range cruiser or a liveaboard this yacht must be viewed.
