Hope II is a rare and sought after motorsailer version of the Natant 24, a well thought out cruiser designed by Fred Parker with a spacious and comfortable cockpit. Ideal for pottering on the East coast, her 42hp Mercedes OM636 provides plenty of power for cruising under power and bilge plates allow her to take the ground if desired. She comes with a good inventory including a colour chart plotter, autopilot and fishfinder.
