Broker's Comments

This boat comes to the market having had a nice shiny new engine fitted in 2015 and she is only showing 160 hours so far so quite a benefit.
Her upholstery, head linings and interior look good but I do think you might want to plan to paint the deck at some point.

Notes from owner:
Robust and solid on the wind performance. Essentially dry sailing ! Suit club racer and young family cruising, (coastal and across channel). Can be and has been sailed single handed with nearly all control from cockpit.

Engine replaced by new Beta16hp used less than 200 hours mostly mooring to harbour entrance.

Laid up ashore 3 of 5 last winters at GBY.

We feel she is ready for use in Solent and further afield following upgrade of navigation equipment.
