"A fine example of how boats used to be built during the 80's". This is a well and truly delightful vessel, the 12 Meter Aft Cabin Broom comes from a renown quality boatbuilder. Built during 1988, these models had various layouts with a total of only 28 built and this one is number 16. A large island berth in the aft cabin with two large single berths to the fore cabin. Twin Volvo 305hp engines complements this impressive vessel which gives a good fuel return and excellent sea keeping along with comfort to a high standard that you expect from a Broom. This vessel will make a fantastic live aboard or for great cruising over long periods.
The owners have dearly loved this boat for over 11 years with much expense and many fond memories and voyages have been undertaken throughout there ownership.(there's a clip on You Tube of a recent voyage to London)
A serious purchaser will not be disappointed once seen and advice with re location, moorings and delivery could be arranged.
Prior arrangements must be made due to the location.
