The Kent 8M Motor Sailer is a great family sailing cruiser with spacious accommodation and a large cockpit, and is ideal for use on the Norfolk Broads having been built locally. This example was a barn find in 2000, part finished and seemingly never having been afloat prior to this date. Her fit out was subsequently completed and she was then launched. She has since been in the same ownership for some 14+ years and is understood to be in good sound condition. Whilst it is acknowledged that she would benefit from cosmetic improvement to her interior, she has been sensibly priced to reflect this for a quick sale and offers will be considered. For sale due to the purchase of another boat. A great GRP family Broads cruiser! Quick sale desired.

MOORING: It's understood that the vessel's current northern Broads mooring may be transferable to the purchaser subject to agreement from the mooring owner.

UPDATE JUNE 2019: Must be sold - all offers considered!
