  • Location: United Kingdom
  • Boat Ref: 6395715
  • Model Year: 1998

A high-volume, classic British quality sailing yacht, this model has a good beam and great seakeeping manners. Ample accommodation, good sail rig for her size and a friendly and social arrangement make this boat a lovely and capable boat. Fully equipped and ready to sail, no expense has been spared on her upkeep and she has seen relatively little use (3-4 months per year). One careful owner since new, the boat is well-maintained and looked after by a maintenance company when not in use, so her pedigree, quality, and physical credentials are strong. Mechanically she is fully-functioning and is very much for sale. Offers invited. She will be available from Febuary 2018. Please contact for further information.

Interior fitout is the Mk II with master cabin aft, plus convertible double forward. A spacious galley with good storage is adjacent to a comfortable inner dining area, which doubles up as a lounge, and there are bathrooms fore and aft. Finish is teak with blue seat covers. Mosquito nets and curtains fitted throughout.
