Broker's Comments

This looks like a good and solid example of these ever-popular family cruisers.

She's nice and clean and well-equipped and has storage everywhere!

A large cockpit, with a very large cockpit tent, extends the living area and, down below, she's nice, bright and airy, thanks to a light interior and those lovely big windows!

A useful galley should enable easy cooking at sea or alongside and she has a good nav station too, with plenty of stowage.

Her port aft quarter berth has been remodelled to expand the galley and storage space, but this could be reverted with relative ease, to provide another large berth, if wished.

With her in-mast furling and lines led aft, she could lend herself to family and/or friends cruising for weekends or potentially much longer.

Rudder mould included!

From her owner:

I purchased her after viewing multiple boats, many of them as beautiful as they were, just didn't really sit right with me, they were either too stuffy, lacked any charm or were absolute wrecks.

When I first set foot on her I knew I'd found the one, incredibly light and airy, but with original wood which gave her the charm I needed, the height room throughout was also a selling point being 6'2 I was able to stand up still!

The exterior canopy pretty much acting as an extra cabin was also very welcomed. Not to mention the endless storage that was on board, if I'd wanted I could have lived a minimalist lifestyle but hidden away I could have kept an Aladdin's cave of belongings.

Unfortunately with the coming of Covid my plans to learn to sail were quickly hastened, a lack of income did mean that learning to sail via the RYA was put on hold.

During this time however I cherished every moment of being on board, from the rough days where she was as strong as an ox to the sunnier warmer nights which with all hatches open, just resting in the breeze. She was and still is an absolute dream, a wonderful boat that deserves more than I can currently give her.
