It is rare to find a Sports Cruiser in this price range and, it is true to say, there is some work to be carried out with particular with reference to the Cockpit sole and engine boxes. Much of the interior is purely a 'clean and polish' excercise. The craft is lying with the Broker at Newhaven on tidal moorings. Call before visiting to establish the ability to 'be afloat'.
