Broker's Comments

These Prospects were the original built 'like tanks' GRP hulls and have stood the test of time. Safe, strong and seaworthy, a great little cruising yacht.

She has been well maintained and with five berths provides a lot of boat for the money with all the equipment you need to sail away.

These boat details are subject to contract.
