A David Thomas classic. Built in 2008 kept locally and with looks that will turn heads.
Often compared with a sea going 'Morgan' Aero 8, the Link / Mystery 30 combines gentlemanly good looks with a turn of pace to put a smile on your face...
Now out of the water at Hamble Point Marina and available for viewing..

Above all she is a very attractive, classic looking yacht which can be easily handled with a small crew.
