Broker's Comments

Looking for a large, spacious and unique cruiser? This one was built to the original owner's requirements. There's plenty of room aboard for six to cruise in comfort. She was Built on the River Carron, a tributary of the Forth She was commissioned in 2000. With a full keel and at over 42 ft. she promises safe and comfortable cruising in Scottish waters or wherever you wish to take her. The current owner has sailed with his family on three week passages to The Orkneys and as far south as Hartlepool. This one is full of opportunities for a new owner.
