Broker's Comments

I first visited this Contest 32 with the owner in January 2020, and was able to take some external pictures, the plan was to return to the boat when the owner had put her back together from winterisation. Unfortunately, this has not been possible due to lockdown.
This boat has been in the same ownership for 32 years, and it was clear from what I could see, that she has been well cared for. It is not often that we have full traceability over this period.
Unfortunately owing to Covid - 19 the decision has been taken by the Cruising club not to launch boats before 2021.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
