Owners Comments

Purchased as new in 2007 and stayed in Arklow until 2017. When I bought her in 2017 she was in excellent condition. She was very lightly used and I received an excellent Surveyors report.

In the last four years,I have used her for light cruising and September / October White Sail racing. She is ideal for club racing and easy to manage for cruising.
