Owners Own Comments:
Full documented history. The present owner bought her in 2007. She has been professionally maintained with sensible up-grading and is presented in immaculate condition.
The original construction is as good as money could buy in her day and experienced, careful ownership throughout her life has ensured her present superb condition. The design with a long cock-pit which can take 4 and a small cabin for 2 makes an ideal day sailer and week-end boat. A joy to sail and a joy to own
