Broker's Comments

Well cared for version of a traditional motor sailer with a reputation for high quality build and superb sea keeping. Despite her modest length this is really a boat that could go anywhere the Owner wished.
She is currently ashore and the hull and below waterline look clean and topsides are shiny. On board she is not luxurious by any means, but there is a feel of strength and security about her.
Very useful cockpit table area which could easily adapt to extra accommodation. Sails appear to be in very good condition and the engine has, only modest hours use. I recommend viewing if you are interested in a good motor sailor around thirty feet.
