Broker's Comments

You can feel straight away that this boat has been looked after, both above and below deck. She boasts many upgrades from the standard spec, particularly in the areas of sails and sail handling.

On this boat, you could still be sailing long after the others have turned their engines on!

Getting to Mallorca for a viewing is so easy from the UK – choose from London, Manchester, Cardiff, Newcastle Southampton, Cardiff, Birmingham, Bristol, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Belfast – onward transport to Palma and the main marinas is very quick and easy too.

If you decide to keep your boat at Mallorca, you can look forward to fabulous weather, easy access to the Balearics and mainland Spain, secluded coastal sailing and fantastic entertainment ashore.
