Launched in 1989 this 41ft steel cutter-rigged Bill Dixon design is an ideal blue water cruiser with a Beta 50HP (2006). She boasts a large inventory as she was designed and kitted out for world cruising and to be a liveaboard for extended periods at sea. An ideal opportunity to lay your hands on this 'go anywhere', heavy displacement cruiser. Beautifully kept and maintained, this is a truly special boat that benefits from only three owners since new. Currently ashore at Northney Marina, Hayling Island and available for viewings 6 days a week.
