Broker's Comments

Stepping onboard this yacht, what strikes you is the care and attention to detail the current owner has put into her over the years. Her decks are very clean and uncluttered and her woodwork appears to be in great condition.
She was re-engined in 2010, the same year her standing rigging was renewed.
The current owner has owned her for 29 years and has sailed her extensively in the UK and overseas proving her seakeeping ability and pedigree.
In our opinion she is a classic beauty of a bygone era.
