History Know to us we sold her to and for her last two owners. She was built for her first owner in Chichester, who took delivery in late october 1999, ( they loved her and wanted a new Broom 42..!) we then sold her for them to her second owner in January 2004, and delivered her down to her new home on the Yealm in Devon..We sold her on for that owner to her current third owner in August 2005 due to ill health, the current owner had her delivered to Ireland and has cruise mostly on the Shannon.. she has nad good drying periods ashore especially in later years where she has been stored in a boat shed each winter. Big service July 2017 to both engines.
Broker's Comments Great Boats.. this one is well know to us as we sold her to both her last two owners, She has been wintered ashore in a shed for the last five years or so. and she looks good for it, the upholstery is still in super order as are the carpets, ( both replaced some 7 years ago .. great spec with twin yanmars, and I like the extra side window to port at dinnette, Click on the Following link to see the VIDEOWALK ; http://youtu.be/m829iLYSlh4
