Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.

This is a well-known and much-loved family cruising yacht. During the first 30 years of her life she extensively cruised European offshore & coastal waters including Ireland, UK, France, Holland and Scandinavia.

She has spent the last 25 years on the large inland lakes in Ireland. Many of her early cruising voyages were documented in the Irish Cruising Club Annuals in the late 1950’s and 1960’s. She also became well known in sail racing circles as she was used as a committee boat in Dublin Bay regattas in the 1970’s. Over the last 15 years she has also been in active service as the committee boat for several major national, European and world sailing events.
