Broker's Comments

This Sunbird 32 was the first off the production line and her woodwork is more substantial than the following boats. Originally finished new for the Southampton Boat Show she was originally used as a demonstrator

She was then extensively refitted in 1986 and has an unexpected amount of space internally which would make extended stays on board very easy The addition of a solid fuel stove increases creature comforts.

These boats have a reputation for being great boats to sail and with the simple rig, it make single handed sailing very easy. Used regularly and extensively cruised in the Channel and North Sea the owner now wishes to sell this well equipped boat to an appreciative new owner. Early viewing is highly recommended

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
