Broker's Comments

Over 650 hulls were built between 1980 and 1986 for this popular family cruiser/racer, with a good ballast ratio these are safe and capable yachts that will look after you in a blow.

This particular example appears to have been well maintained and had a full engine rebuild in 2017 with a new gearbox as well. She was last out and anti fouled in 2021 and has recently had a new electric windlass and 2 new batteries fitted.

She has a very modern feel to her and stacks of internal space with the 3 double cabins and 2 heads. She is perfect for sailing with family and friends on short or long passages.
