Broker's comments

BUCHANAN 33, designed by the famous British naval architect Alan Buchanan, was built using only the best materials such as teak & Oregon pine. Nowadays priceless.She has been constantly upgraded by new electric systems, solar panels, anchor winch, inverter, fridge, AIS, EPIRB, VHF dsc, new hatches, batteries,new main sail, new Genoa, new Code 0, new corian kitchen counter & sink etc. However her classic character remained intact. She has taken part in many classic yacht regattas & she has sailed in the North Sea & the Mediterranean. Delivery-transfer by her present owner is possible.
