An excellent boat for family or more experienced sailors alike. The lifting keel and minimum draft of 0.7m allows easy exploration of shallower creeks and harbours. The boat benefits from a reliable Yanmar 1GM inboard diesel engine which has been fully maintained each year. Berths fore and aft sleep up to 4 adults and galley, marine heads, 50 litre fridge, navigation station and saloon table provide all the important accommodation needed. Storage space is good for the size of boat and there is an exceptionally large storage locker accessed from the cockpit which will take all the usual equipment such as dinghy, outboard, fenders etc. Described as a fast modern small cruiser cruiser with a simple cruising interior and quite high performance under sail - she is fun to sail, handles well including in light airs. She has twin rudders and so can dry out level if required, balanced on the keel housing and the rudder tips.
The boat has been well-maintained and kept in good condition. Recent maintenance and improvement includes:
