Broker's Comments

This Waterwitch 30 is a triple-keel, masthead ketch, constructed of GRP composite hull with metal frames, plywood and GRP sheathed decks and superstructure.

The inside of the boat is surprisingly open and light. The saloon provides a wide open area with sensible headroom. The saloon table is huge and the seating to port and starboard doubles to form two well positioned sea berths.

The galley has a clean and functional two burner hob/grill cooker and stainless steal sink with infill. There is a neat and well appointed navigation station to port, opposite the galley.

Forward, there is a typical V-berth, with plenty of room for two adults, there is also a functional heads to port. The engine presents in a clean and functional state.

A recent price reduction, reflects some structural work required to see the boat right. Please call or email for further details.
