Broker's Comments

For all those Macwester fans out there, this vessel is definitely worth a look.

In addition to the classic, sturdy, strong & very seaworthy characteristics of other Macwesters of a similar size, this 8m variant has more internal space and headroom, making her feel light and airy down below.

This particular vessel appears tidy, shipshape and well maintained. The sail drive has been stripped, maintained, rebuilt and comes with a new seal fitted in 2018. The inventory also includes a boatyard cradle.

A safe, seaworthy yacht for first timers or seasoned sailors.
