Broker's Comments

Rydgeway Marine built these yachts on Oulton Broad, Suffolk to a design by Van de Stadt together with the Pegasus, Pandora and Prelude ranges.

This vessel has been well maintained and equipped and has had the benefit of a recent engine, fitted in 2012. Her standing rigging was also renewed in 2009 and she had a positive survey in 2017

They are reported to be good sailers with no obvious vices and an unbelievable amount of accommodation down below.

With the benefit also of a retractable keel she could show good performance to windward, as well as being able to explore those harder to reach destinations.

These boat details are subject to contract.
