This is a good example of this well finished yacht. The interior is well lit and is in good condition having teak veneered panelling, doors and joinery. It is well planned, well detailed and provides exceptional accommodation for the size of the boat. The rear cabin is of generous size and has a panorama window at water level in the transom. There is room for improvement cosmetically regarding the saloon sole boards, head and side linings.
