Broker's comments

For the serious long distance cruiser that is looking for a high quality and easy to handle Ketch that is fully equipped and ready to go. A very sturdy and solidly built one-off ketch with all structural material at least 2 grades above standard requirements. No expense was spared and the solid interior woodwork is immaculate and absolutely as good as new. The hull is based on the Bruce Roberts designed BR 493 while the deck has an aft and midships cockpit, both with entrances to below. The boat is very well equipped and perfectly maintained and in an unbelievably spotless condition!
