History Now with her Fourth owner. This boat has had ALL owners who have treasured her, and the latest owner has carried on the good work, She is super order. She has been lifted and serviced as required. and we have seen sight of all Vat paperwork and nice Original Bill of sale chain.
Broker's Comments Fantastic boats, I have delivered some twenty+ of these far and wide, and they are more able than some people might think! Well put together as well, The long keel will allow her to take the ground against a wall, ( I have in the past fitted beaching legs infact) easy side decks are great for any crew, and her upper helm is warm and well protected, with room for a paperchart.. a good all rounder that will bash her way through the 5-6 to get there.. then happily potter up the canals and rivers of Europe, with her low screen height and gas assisted Arch...No wonder they were Broom most popular boat. These Engines give her a "Lazy 18+ Knots cruise and when clean should push her to 25 Knots or so..
