OWNERS COMMENTS

Ladybrid is in very good condition for her age, especially her interior mattresses and woodwork. Only 2 owners from new. Solent sailing only, never raced. Great sailing performance for the size of yacht. Rates well for club races and Round The Island, if you do wish to race. There is an active local Beneteau Owners Association. Ready to sail away.
