Owners Comments

I purchased this yacht on 10 May 2013.  As an Ex Demo boat at that point, it had 32 hours on the engine essentially 'a new boat'!  She has excelled in her sailing ability and is very easy to manage as I sail single handed most of the time.  I have altered the sail controls with everything back to the cockpit.  She is capable of dealing with any weather and also fun.  

She is exceptionally comfortable to live on and sociable when guests are aboard.  The canvas stack pack; sprayhood; cockpit canopy and Dodgers were all new this year (2017)....a much-improved item to the original stack pack and spray hood.

'Worthy Friend' has been a pleasure to own, being safe, comfortable, fast and a delight to sail, a most rewarding experience.  She is very well equipped, comfortable and easily managed single handed.
