    Brokers Comments
    “Eclipse” was purchased by her current owner and has been used to cruise the Solent & South Coast.  Her owner describes her as being a very safe and well built boat, she has had many upgrades over the years including fitting of a new diesel engine in 2010 and new standing rigging in 2017 as well as a new Chart Plotter & Stern Gland in 2019. She has 5 berths, a Galley & separate Heads & has the massive added advantage of having a Shore Power Connection to power the home comforts when in the Marina. Overall Eclipse is in very good condition for her age and makes an excellent family boat, that is well presented, has a good level of equipment and is ready to go.

    The Snapdragon 747 is notably roomy for a boat of her size with lots of storage. She sails very well, and is an excellent, safe & reliable boat which is both fun to sail & comfortable to spend time on-board. She is ideal for family sailing around coastal waters whilst still being very capable of cruising further afield should you wish. She is currently lying in Southampton & viewing can be arranged through Aspire Boat Sales.
