Broker's Comments

A lot of thought has gone into the design of this West Country made pocket cruiser.

This little ketch rigged motor sailer is seaworthy and sturdy enough for heavy seas with her long keel and bilge plates, she also has the ability to explore shallow waters and to take the ground.

The extra deep centre cockpit has all the lines led back to it, the wheel steering is fitted with an autopilot and the solid wheel house offers lots of protection and ease of use.

The accommodation which has two separate cabins, a sea toilet and a small galley, offers a surprising amount of room for weekending or longer trips.

This particular vessel has been sailed across the Irish Sea, along the South West coast and recently around Plymouth waters.

A handy, capable and well equipped wheelhouse ketch motor sailer.

N.B. Owner will consider part-exchange plus cash for a smaller boat e.g. Leisure 17, Foxcub, Drascombe, Falmouth Bass.
