Brokers remarks:

This Broom has had much expense through her time afloat & despite her year, will continue to give much pleasure to those looking to enjoy some quiet simple time afloat either in a quiet back water of some coastal retreat or an inland river location that offers tranquility for the retired perhaps? A very comfortable, easy to handle cruiser with recently serviced engines, clean fuel tanks & polished fuel. Boat Safety certificate recently expired.
