Broker's Comments

Boatshed Bourgogne is happy to offer this BLAWE HAND of 1978, dutch steel cruiser, for sale in France.

A lot of care has been given to this boat by the current owners and it really showed throughout my visit. All is thought out and organized for comfort and ease of use. Good headroom from 1,80 to 1,93 meter throughout the boat.

Ideal for 4 adults, this dutch steel cruiser can accommodate 6 when using the dinette in the large bright and very nice saloon.

Ready to cruise, with all creature comforts, conscientious maintenance and recent improvements.

Hull prepared and ready for new antifoul in 2018.
