  • There’s also a very large lazarette within the aft cockpit plus access to the flybridge.

  • There is a set of sliding patio doors leading into the bright and airy saloon.
  • Port side has a large ‘L’ sofa whilst opposite is a tub chair and a cabinet with draws, cupboards and surface space. Engine access is below the saloon.
  • You then step up to the lower helm which is port side and benefits from the popular twin helm seat. (AC/DC Switch panel below).
  • The helm is original and in good condition. The navigation equipment is also original, but not all of it is functioning i.e. the radar and autopilot.
  • Engine hour gauge displays just 2218 hrs.
  • Opposite the helm is the stb side galley. The galley is well appointed and equipped with a four ring hob, high level oven, fridge, twin round stainless steel sinks, ample storage and work surface space.
