I cant get the Photos from the Channel Yacht Sales page so you will just have to look on their page, or on the PDF. but here are some I managed to grab from outside on my wondering round:

I had a look round the inside and met the current owners Last week; I am tempted, as its a nice boat; and it is already in the area I am planning on moving to, and they are planning on moving out about March-ish, just need to contact them, and sort out the details relating to getting it surveyed and re-blacked.
