Broker's Comments

Boatshed Essex are pleased to present this lovely Snapdragon 27, which are well regarded and sought-after yachts. With their deep spacious cockpit, good sized decks and bilge keels, it's ideal for cruising the rivers and estuaries and capable for longer distance cruising.

With a good sized saloon, with double dinette, galley and separate heads, sleeping six comfortably, the interior feels very spacious, also with plenty of storage. Throughout this current ownership, this boat looks to have been carefully maintained, with a more recent engine and upgrading of the rig. With the comfort in and out and set up for cruising and enjoying weekend breaks away.

This is a lot of boat for the money and well worth serious consideration.
