The boat was re-engined in 2014 but had little use until these last few months, currently the engine has run just 101 hours. It was professionally serviced in June 2018. Two coats of Hempel Cruising Performer antifoul were applied in June 2018.
The boat is in commission and will continue to be enjoyed while she is for sale. It’s possible that I could get interested in some sort of part-exchange (subject to ebay rules) with a smallish shallow draft (3 feet max) yacht.
Current Price: £5500.00
