Broker's Comments

This hurricane damaged vessel was very lucky to only lose her rig and a few other details listed:
Bent stanchions on port and starboard sides.
There is a 5 x 5cm hole on the cap rail midships port side.
Some gelcoat has been chaffed off in certain areas.
She was in dry storage for the storms of 2017. A new rig for an equivalent sized vessel in the BVI is around $30 000 fitted. Pricing can vary in other island territories. She has been laying on her side briefly as can be seen by water marks in the cockpit areas. She must have fallen at some point. Being in the water it is not possible to see the hull for damage.

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