An opportunity to purchase one of the world's most successful small wheelhouse cruisers with over 1500 built since it's introduction in 1975. A long keel, cruiser with a surprisingly good turn of speed under sail, powerful inboard diesel engine and a full range of electronic navigation aids. A smart interior with cabin heating and well equipped galley increase comfort afloat while an abundance of storage make prolonged stays on board practical. Wintered ashore each year by the current owner, the boat was hull polished and anti-fouled in March 2016 prior to re-launch in April.
