Broker's Comments

This is, without a doubt, a big project for someone.

She hasn't been used for a long time and it shows. But, with time, effort and resources, we think she could be brought back from the brink and may make someone an excellent blue water cruiser or even a home, in the right place.

Her upper deck is very spacious, with plenty of room for lounging and stowage, whilst down below, there is a lot of accommodation, offering many berths, a good sized saloon and a very handy galley area.

If you can see past the first impressions and appreciate what lays beneath, you can start to see what potential there may still be in this past globe trotter.

I'd presume most of the equipment is now defective, though some may be redeemable.
