The boat has had two owners from new, between 2006 and 2010 it was used on the River Thames and was only moved to Sovereign Harbour in March 2010.
The boat was chocked ashore in July 2016 and was polished and re anti-fouled with Hemple hard racing black.
The vendor has a new Ongaro 12v single replacement horn to be fitted and intends to paint the drive legs with a Volvo grey anti-fouling primer and top coat.
An excellent example and well worth considering.
