Broker's Comments

This Solar 32 lends itself to both coastal and river cruising in comfort. With a plethora of navigation instruments to take you out to sea safely. It is difficult to imagine a 32 foot craft with so much room! With two heads and a very comfortable aft cabin. The flybridge gives excellent views all round and the aft deck offers a summer evening social facility to be enjoyed!
It is a credit to the current owner and early viewing is highly recommended to appreciate the condition of this vessel.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
