Broker Remarks

This fine boat has been the subject of continuous updating and improvement over many years by a dedicated owner who used her for family cruising in the Mediterranean and French canals.
She was the subject of a comprehensive refit in 2006, and was re-engined in 2014.
The current owner has endeavoured to maintain this approach - 2020 improvements including the addition of rope cutters, new aft davits carrying an Avon RIB and outboard, new dodgers and aft canvas enclosure/bimini, replacement of all batteries.
