“Andante” was professional built by Wind Boats in 1972 to Lloyds standards. Her present owner who trained as a cabinet maker fitted the boat out over a period of 12 years, finally launching on the 1st June 1984. The build was overseen by Bill Sutton of Sutton & Wiggins Boatyard. The owner has spent a great deal of time and money on completing the boat to a high standard for family and off-shore cruising. She remains a very capable boat indeed and currently lies afloat on her mooring at Tollesbury Marina.

A recent survey indicated the hull is extremely sound but the marine ply sub-deck below the teak does require some work hence the attractive asking price.
