Broker's Comments

This is a fantastic looking blue water cruiser with an amazing history and she appears to be in very good condition, after being loved and cared for by her present owners, who have spent the last 11 years circumnavigating the world.

Her owners say they have sailed many thousands of miles using the wind vane steering alone. In rough seas and strong winds, they say she is a very safe and stable boat. Below decks she has always remained dry. Her fully protected cockpit makes for comfortable sailing.

The wind generator and solar panels allow her to be self sufficient at sea without the engine and there is ample locker and cupboard space.

Her enclosed centre cockpit with cushioning and removable swinging table gives ample room for entertaining.

She's been constantly updated and improved over the last 12 years, receipts and instruction manuals are available when viewing - more information is available on request
