Broker's Comments

This 30 ft Rose of Arden design is well known to long-time members of the 'Harrison Butler Association' for her repeated crossings of the Atlantic under her previous owner. She has also cruised the Caribbean, the East coast of South America, Portugal and the Mediterranean.

She has been laid up in dry storage for the last 8 years and has recently undergone an extensive refit, by her present owner, to make her ready for more adventures at sea. This includes a full hull repaint, deck repaint, engine service and rigging service, all in 2016.
