The condition or level of safety equipment on board is not to be negotiated on following survey. It is likely to be listed by most surveyors but is not structural or an integral working part of the vessel and is not to be used to further negotiate the price down after survey. We strongly suggest that for your own personal safety that when purchasing a boat you provide new safety equipment rather than relying on second hand gear.

Should you become the new owner of this boat then the responsibility to re-register or update official bodies for items such as EPIRB, VHF, MMSI or AIS becomes yours.


An impressive well documented ‘maintenance log’ that has been kept up to date. Comprehensive list of spares available on request.

Until current owners purchase she had been a UK based boat, taken to Greece by present owner 2013.  Lightly cruised from 2013 to present day in the Ionion Sea.

Owners Comments:

She has been meticulously maintained to a very high standard. The new turbos, injectors and overhauled fuel pumps has resulted in her being a smooth-running economical cruiser. We cruised from the South of France to Greece encountering challenging weather and proved herself to be a sturdy and seaworthy vessel. Planned maintenance for 2021 is to change the oil, oil filters and fuel filters.
