Broker's Comments

Junk Rigged Newbridge Venturer built in 1983.
She has bilge keels and is powered by a "Vire" single cylinder petrol engine through a "Saildrive to a 2 blade folding propeller.
The sail manufactured by "EXE sails" have only been used 4 times and the owner informs me that she "points" at just under 40.
She has jointed battens and a tapered mast.
She comes with her purpose built road trailer.
She is presented "as is" and whilst she may need a little tidying internally she presents good value for money.
The owner informs me that sail making is a "Black Art" and that the Main sail performs exceptionally well.
