Broker's Comments

This boat was built by Formosa but to the spec of a Kelly Peterson 46 with a Fin and Skeg. The paperwork is for a Formosa 44 but she is actually the same design layout and dimensions as the Peterson 46 though clearly not an original Kelly Peterson.
However, she sails and performs the same and the present owners have had her for over 30 years and are the second owners.

She had a survey in 2011 but she could benefit from a new set of sails and some work on the interior and exterior wood.

The boat has a spongy deck and we had an estimate in 2017 from a local yard of £15,600 to complete the work. Cut out the deck, clean it out, dry it out and replace with new layer and then fit the new top deck.

If you are looking for a classic, performance Blue Sea Boat, then this yacht represents good value for money.

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