Of this latter version, 246 were built, primarily for export.
This is a very pretty yacht, with a superb hull profile, with a Ballast of 1.4 tonnes @ a ratio of over 45% will clearly be a well performing stiff Yacht.
A great sized cockpit ideal for a racing crew or a family cruising.
She is in need of a little TLC but at this price with its replacement fitted good engine, she would be a great starter Yacht to take on and easily brought back to her former glory.
