She has 6/7 berths in 3 cabins including a double “V” berth in the forward cabin with shelving and hanging locker. Her saloon has single settee berths port and starboard, one of which converts to a double and her separate aft cabin to starboard has a large double berth.
“Dipper” was purchased by her current owner in 2006 and a survey was carried out at that time. She was fitted out by her first owners to the highest standards, all lines led aft for easy sailing and having the added benefit of a self tacking jib. Regretfully, her owner has not been able to sail her over the past 2 seasons and she has remained afloat. She'll need to come ashore for antifouling and anodes, an engine service and perhaps time for new standing rigging hence the attractive price.
