Broker's Comments

As you will see from the photos, this is a pretty looking yacht as approached to her swinging mooring. With strong lines indicating an offshore-type-design.
The interior is constructed around an internal moulding which forms the furniture. There were two main layout options, both relying on a large dinette to starboard, this one being the galley to port with ¼ berth aft known as a Mk1.
A small forecabin is separated by the heads & hanging locker, from the saloon and a large fore hatch, accessed with built in steps in the heads. The unusually large companionway opens up most of the saloon making it light and airy.
Recently the owner has been busy making valuable improvements, such as new seacocks and a new saildrive diaphragm, all supported by a plethora of invoices.
In some ways this is a reluctant sale, yet a new yacht beckons.
