Broker Remarks

Sprinter has recently been upgraded, including new sails, new electronic instruments and wiring and a new engine. She successfully completed the 2008 Jester Challenge (single handed race to the Azores). Sprinter needs some fibre-glass work around the mast base and the shroud attachment points on the deck, which is now reflected in the reduced asking price. The owner is selling as he has purchased a bigger boat to undertake more extended cruising.

Galley: Gimballed Plastimo Atlantic 2-burner hob, with oven and grill. Cockpit: Large cockpit locker port side; small locker to starboard; large lazarette.
