Broker's Comments

This looks like a really nice example of the well respected Barbary Ketch Motor Sailer. The boat was stripped out and rebuilt to a high standard in the early 2000's and the interior still looks good as per the pictures.

She is very well equipped with plenty of electronics, safety and deck gear. She has been copper coated and was last out of the water in February 2023 and had new anodes fitted. There are around £60,000 worth of invoices from the refit!

Part Exchange may be considered!!
