Description

English

"aquaFoBe" has been in the same ownership since she was moulded in 1979. She was fitted out by the owner over an extended period to a high standard and commissioned in 2003. Her topsides are the original yellow gelcoat which has faded a little and would benefit from compound polishing but, that aside, she is a very tidy boat. The engine starts and runs well, the sails are good, her woodwork is excellent and the interior is warm and comfortable. "aquaFoBe" is a great pocket cruiser.
