There is spacious open plan accommodation, aided by a pop up central section, giving generous internal space for a yacht of this size. It has built-in solid foam buoyancy. The internal soft furnishings are of very good quality. A 500kg water ballast system allows for good sailing ability but keeps the trailing weight low, making it easily towed behind most family saloons. A versatile boat equally at home on the sea or inland waterways such as the Broads and Lakes. The trailer is in need of a new break system, possibly new tyres and the original outboard may need some work or replacement. Kept in Rye on hard standing.
