Boat owned from new and lightly used for Solent cruising but well equipped for extensive Coastal and Cross Channel cruising and short handed sailing.
The accommodation, including the semi deck saloon is exceptionally spacious and has the room of a much larger boat, with plenty of headroom and natural light. The boat is equipped with a movable chart table, which can easily be demounted when not required and the additional back cushion fitted.
The elevated quarter seats in the pushpit have always proved popular for relaxing during fair weather cruising.
The Copper coat antifouling is effective and has reduced maintenance with the boat being lifted ashore every two years and on intervening years have a quick pressure wash/relaunch, June 2019 boat being lifted for wash off and new anode to sail drive. Owner sadly retiring from sailing.
This is a beautiful clean example, please call for an early appointment to view her 7 days a week on - Phone number removed -
