This is a unique opportunity to acquire a traditionally styled centre cockpit yacht with good sea keeping qualities, high specification and modern equipment. Shoal draft capabilities, bowthruster and new spars and sails including in-mast furling main make this an ideal choice for short handed sailing and blue water cruising. A professional 6 year major refit was completed to a high standard however she is now in need of a thorough clean and her brightwork attending to. Now heavily reduced, if you are looking for an Atlantic Clipper this must be the one!
