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.
