Broker's Comments

The Rossiter Pintail is regarded as a good quality yacht built in the 70's by craftsmen. They have a great reputation for being well constructed with loads of storage and a 'go anywhere' concept with shallow draft and triple keels.

This example is no exception and has been, and still is, carefully maintained in accordance with the original parts and fittings originally used.

If you are on the lookout for a 'do anything' quality yacht then we recommend a viewing is essential.
