This is a very rare opportunity to own one of the most spacious and practical lift keel vessels available today. With her three double cabins, "Laural" is a very spacious family cruiser. Her saloon and galley layout in particular is very large and practical, the settee and an extra large table are fabulous hosting and entertaining features. 'Laural' looks amazing and her joinery and overall condition is excellent, all this with the flexibility and freedom granted with a lift keel. For anyone in the market who has a desire or requirement for shallow water access, then this vessel is a must see.
