REMARKS: For sale unexpectedly due to health reasons. It is understood she has been maintained almost regardless of cost. The owner is also prepared to consider part-ex for car/property etc.

OUR OPINION: Although not personally inspected, we understand that this is a really nice boat and one that is well worth seeing. Though she only has 3 berths, this is a very comfortable and spacious vessel upon which the owner has spent a significant sum of money.
