Broker's Comments

Bought from new and with just one owner, this example of the Character Boats Coastal Weekender is very stable, easy to sail single handedly and comes with a braked trailer (refurbished in 2013), making it easy to store, tow, launch and recover.

Although this vessel doesn't come with an outboard, a 3.5hp - 5hp engine would suit and fit in the specially designed cockpit / engine locker next to the helm.

Being reluctantly sold due to health issues, this classic looking vessel with shallow draft would be ideal for exploring shallow waters, day sailing with friends & family or even camping overnight under the stars with the added benefit of the two quarter berths & cockpit cover.
