Broker's Comments

The vendor put his heart and soul into the build of this traditional yacht. The vendor is a marine engineer and this shows in the build quality and the subsequent maintenance of the boat.

The hull is insulated that together with its Eperspacher heater means that this yacht is well suited for use in cold Northern watersmas well as in warmer climes.

If you like a traditional trawler style motor sailer with the range of a sailing boat but the comfort of a motor yacht then this is the yacht for you. An early viewing is strongly recommended.

These boat details are subject to contract.
