Broker's Comments

I thought this boat appeared to be in good all-round condition, and with the addition of a new engine (Beta 25) in 2010, installed by the current owner and many upgrades, would provide a new owner with a well-maintained boat to sail in. This was confirmed by the 2017 survey report, which concluded “the boat is in above average condition for a vessel of this age”.The mast is quite easily de rigged for transit through rivers and canals.
