Broker Remarks

This professionally built ferro MacAlister has cruised extensively, including trabs-Atlantic passages and is a serious live aboard long distance cruising boat. Many ferro boats have had poor press , mainly because they were of amateur build but the finish quality of this ketch has to be seen. There are many advantages with ferro............they can be left afloat for very long periods, they are osmosis free, they do not rot and they also do not rust. She had a major refit in 2005-2007 and has also been rewired throughout with much recent equipment. For anyone requiring a go anywhere cruisng boat this ketch should not be overlooked and viewing is recommended.
