Broker's Comments

Looking to cruise in style and comfort? Then look no further. This timeless, trawler type, motor cruiser is handsome, practical and comfortable.

The twin 200hp Volvo diesels and large capacity fuel tanks facilitate extended passage making, whilst the recently fitted bow thruster gives reassuring manoeuvrability within tight marinas.

The aft and side decks, with high bulwarks and solid safety rails, offer a feeling of safety, particularly for children and pets. Whilst the built in gates to the sides and transom, facilitate easy access onboard.

The wheelhouse offers good all round visibility. The helm position is comfortable, has a good nav fit and a handy side door to access the deck.

There is plenty of space for socialising, inside and on deck, and the second helm position on the flybridge, will allow you to spend enjoyable time on the water, come rain or shine.

Headroom is good, mostly 6ft3 throughout, and the light, airy living area has ample seating and a well equipped galley, including a full sized fridge & cooker.

Down below, the forward cabin has a large double berth. There is plenty of storage, two hanging lockers and the separate heads compartment, with shower and sink, is spacious. There’s a hot and cold pressurised water system and cabin heating throughout.

With an unused holding tank, this spacious vessel has a lot to offer and would also make an ideal live aboard.
