Bukh 36 inboard engine driving a 3-bladed feathering Kiwi prop.. Sleeps 5 plus 2 fold down berths in saloon. Tiller steering.
I bought her in 2005 from Berthons in Lymington. Her previous owner had put her through a complete refit below, including engine rebuild, and repainted the topsides.
She is moored on a RNSA swinging mooring in Portland Harbour, in a prime location for 2012 Olympics.
