Broker Remarks

A well kept and maintained example of these very popular fin keeled cruiser/racers. The owner lives 10 minutes from the boat and is quite happy to show it to potential purchasers.

Accommodation

Sailing Today's boat test report says " Remarkable value for money, a cheap yet capable first cruiser. Other cruisers of this length may have more freeboard and more headroom, but until the headroom actually reaches full height it's not much more of an advantage than just having sitting headroom. Drier sailing with more freeboard carries considerable cost and performance penalties" 4 berths in two cabins Vee berths forward with portapotti under central vee, Galley with 2 burner gaz cooker and bowl sink with pump for cold water.(20 Ltr collapsible tank). 2 quarter berths in main saloon area.
