"Ideal coastal family cruiser with a comfortable interior. She is set up for single handed sailing and is in excellent condition."
This boat has been in present ownership since 2006. She has been well looked after and can be handled easily both under engine and sail.
She has the added advantage of the shallower keel which makes her ideal for lake use etc. However she is more than capable of handling the coast as well.
She is priced to sell and viewing is recommended.
