Broker's Comments

Boatshed Midi Canals is pleased to offer this Super Favourite classic Dutch steel cruiser with its spacious, mahogany lined interior. Twin Volvo engines overhauled in 2006 will make for effortless cruising and an excellent vessel to use as a comfortable live aboard.

Large aft deck with exterior helm and full sun cover which is strong but needs some stitching to seams. Teak decking is mostly in good condition but needs a little attention too. All exterior wood railings etc need re-varnishing.

Currently moored on the Canal du Midi with the airports of Beziers, Montpellier and Carcassonne nearby.

For more information or organise a visit, please contact, Graham WHARMBY, your local broker at Boatshed Midi Canals.
