This is a powerful sea boat that has cruised extensively around the South and West Coasts of Ireland, South of England, Channel Islands and Brittany. She is set up to be easily managed by two people and offers a great deal of room below. She has been repainted recently and looks like new. Previous owners club raced her with considerable success in Kinsale and Crosshaven as well as in the Crosshaven to Jersey race.
The present owners have cruised in her since 1991 on the South and West coasts of Ireland, Brittany, the Isles of Scilly, and the south coast of England.
She has been well maintained and is worth a look!
