Broker's Comments

A well maintained example of this popular cruiser/racer. The wood finished interior is far better than more modern yachts but was typical of this era.
She has been lovingly maintained by the owner and would make an excellent starter yacht for someone who wants good quality affordable sailing, or wishing to downsize.
A cradle is included in the sale.
