Broker's Comments

This French racer/cruiser, an early Finot design, is swift, sails well upwind and is pretty too. The class won the Quarter Ton Cup several times back in their day.

This boat was bought as a 'learn to sail' project and sailed over from Guernsey 14 years ago by the present owner. He’s achieved his aim and has enjoyed sailing her locally around Plymouth ever since. He now plans to move abroad and would like to sell her to another enthusiast.

Her fit is quite basic and she could do with a bit of tlc but she has a good pedigree and is priced competitively.

These boat details are subject to contract.
