Broker's Comments

A superb Aquafibre 42 presented in excellent condiition.
The current owner has meticulously cared for this boat during his ownership and as soon as you approach her it becomes evident.
The gelcoat is gleaming having benefited from a polish in May 2019 when she was re anti fouled and new anodes fitted.
She also had an independent survey inspection whilst out of the water.
She was re engined in 2009 and the engine bay which is home to the electric winch for the coach roof, Calorifier and 5 batteries is very clean with no signs of oil or water.
I will say she is the best example of this brand and model I have come across.
She also benefits from heating, 2 heads (1 electric) a Bow thruster and a tastefully re fitted galley with full size gas cooker.
She has a BSC Until 2023 and is Broads licensed until March 2020.
Her current mooring in Brundall could be made available to the new owner if required.
