Owners Comments
We did have some considerable work done 2014 in repainting the hull and deck as well as rebuilding the skeg. The Rudder was also re-built in 2011 as it was a known problem for these boats. All sorted now.
The keels been off 2003 (I believe), checked and refitted. The hull was epoxy primed recently but prior to our ownership.

Brokers Comments
Sancerre is a stunning yacht and I am waiting to get below to take some photos of the interior
