Broker's Comments

A well presented versatile cruiser offering accommodation for 4 .
She has a hot water calorifier and fitting for an immersion heater if required, a good sized heads and shower and a well proportioned aft cockpit area.
She is powered by a Leyland Thorneycroft 1.5 diesel engine through a shaft to the propellor.
The hull is in original gelcoat and she has just been compound polished and re antifouled ready for the season.
She had a full pre purchase survey in 2014 and her BSC runs until October 2021.
The engine was fully serviced late 2017.
Presented in good order throughout.
