Broker's Comments

The Samphire 29 is a solidly-built coastal cruiser, equally suitable as a first boat or for experienced sailors looking to go further afield.

This particular example wasn't commissioned until 1993 and details of the original fit-out are included in the extensive history file, together with the extensive regime of maintenance and upgrades carried out more recently.
This includes replacement of the standing and running rigging, upgrades to the navigation aids and some 'creature comforts' such as blown air cabin heating for when the weather turns chilly!

All in all, a well-found boat in lovely condition!

Please note;
The trailer is not included in the asking price but is available by separate negotiation. It could also be available to help with delivery if required.

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