Broker's Comments

An exceptional offshore cruiser that won the Fastnet in the 70's. This one is fully operational.

This Van de Stat design was a fast boat when first introduced and will still prove herself around the cans.

Cosmetically, she needs some work but has been used for coastal cruising in the Solent and South Coast UK by her present owner.

Existing mooring can be transferred to a new owner.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
