Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
This is a beautiful example of a fantastic yacht, lovingly maintained by a well known author of best selling books on maritime history.
This particular yacht was exhibited by her builders, Bossoms Boatyard, at the London Boat Show in 1990 and was subsequently exhibited twice at the Southampton Boat Show. She has made 16 Channel crossings, has cruised extensively on the South Coast, Thames and Medway, has sailed to the Mediterranean and cruised the Greek islands.
She has been lovingly maintained throughout her life: laid up ashore each winter; fitted with new stainless steel rigging in 2012; new navigation instruments in 2005; and fitted with a new Yanmar engine in 2005. the engine has been regularly serviced by John Cutler Marine.
