Reason for sale: A difficult decision as we really love this boat and she is very pretty on the water. But as retirement approaches we are looking for a change. She is however an ideal family boat and we often went out as a family of 4 when the children were younger – so happy times past and hopefully future for a new owner.
Lying: Cardigan, Ceredigion.
Asking Price: £7,850 ono
