This boat was used for many years by her owners of 22 years as an express cruiser in the South of France. She is typical of the classic, smaller coastal express cruisers used in the United States and is ideal for weekend socialising, or for short cruises. She could be trailed by a large car if required. She is currently stored afloat but under cover with her windscreen, pulpit and handrails removed for ease of access. She is a boat with huge potential, if you are willing to restore her (work required believed to be mainly cosmetic). She appears overall to be in sound condition and should make heads turn wherever she goes.
