This boat has not been personally inspected but is understood to be a professionally built vessel, the internal fit-out (particularly the aft cabin) of which is not yet complete. A 1997 survey report available.
In need of completing and also a fair amount of refitting, this is a large vessel that would repay any work being into her.
